Recapturing (Paying Back) the First-time Homebuyer Credit

If you claimed the first-time homebuyer credit in 2008, and you sold the home or the home stopped being your main home in 2009, you generally must repay the credit. You repay the credit by including it as additional tax on the return for the year your home stops being your main home. For details, see chapter 37.
