First-time homebuyers applying for the credit could not have owned another home within three years of the new home purchase, and either the purchase price of the home or the homebuyer’s modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) could not exceed a certain threshold. The amount of the credit was the lesser of either a fixed percentage of the home’s purchase price or a fixed dollar value.
