EXAMPLE For W-2 employees: take YTD income and divide by pay period ending date. EXAMPLE: borrower has $30,500 YTD income on a paystub with period ending date 8/15.

a mortgage. The annual credit is calculated by taking the annual mortgage interest paid multiplied by the Delaware First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit rate of 35% which has been established by DSHA. o The tax credit is applied to the federal income tax liability of the Delaware First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit certificate holder. There must be a tax liability to claim the credit. To claim credit, tax payers must file IRS Form 8396. Borrowers must meet First Time Homebuyers definitions, and meet household income/sales price maximum limits to qualify. o Homeownership Loans Using DE Tax Credit (MCC) Income Limits County
