1. First-time-homebuyer tax credit

Applies to: purchase of a primary residence before December 1, 2009.

Details: This fully refundable credit of up to $8,000 is available to those who purchase a home in 2009 and who have not owned a home in the previous three years. Unlike a $7,500 credit that was available in 2008, this year's credit does not have to be paid back. You can claim the new credit on your 2009 return, to be filed by April 15, 2010, or -- if you want the cash sooner -- on the 2008 return that was due this year.

If you've already filed last year's return, you can file an amended return to get the money.
