TaxSmart is a Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) program that provides a federal income tax credit to qualified homebuyers. A tax credit is a direct reduction of taxes due. Under the program, a home buyer would receive an MCC to reduce income taxes by an amount equal to 20% of the interest paid on a mortgage. The tax credit may be claimed each year the home buyer continues to live in a home financed under this program.
This chart shows the change (in percent) in sales from the same period in the previous year, starting, on the left, 2005 to 2006. As you can see, it keeps staying negative. Seems like we had a "pop" in sales in Sept/October this year. People probably thought they are getting a great deal and they started buying again. However, the trend continued soft in November.
This chart was just updated to include November 2008 Sales. You can see that it keeps getting worse. Each line represents a month. Each point on the line represents a year. So, taking the top line, it is June, showing the number of sales each year for 2005 through 2008. Each line is continuing to go down.
OK, last chart
