WOW! Up to $8,000.00 income tax credit, if you qualify. Find out how!

As part of its plan to stimulate the U.S. housing market and address the economic challenges facing our nation, Congress has passed new legislation that:

• Extends the First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit of up to $8,000 to first-time home buyers until April 30, 2010.

• Expands the credit to grant up to $6,500 credit to current home owners purchasing a new or existing home between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010.

Here is more information about how the Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit can help prospective home buyers become part of the American dream.

Who Qualifies for the Extended Credit?

• First-time home buyers who purchase homes between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010.

• Current home owners purchasing a home between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010, who have used the home being sold or vacated as a principal residence for five consecutive years within the last eight.

To qualify as a “first-time home buyer” the purchaser or his/her spouse may not have owned a residence during the three years prior to the purchase.

Greenbrier County Convention and Visitors' Bureau released the information in its annual report.

LEWISBURG -- The Greenbrier County Convention and Visitors' Bureau released it's annual report on tourism in the county Monday.

The CVB said Greenbrier County was the fifth most visited location in West Virginia, behind four counties that offer table games.

This past fall, Greenbrier County voters approved gaming for overnight guests at The Greenbrier resort. A temporary casino opened in early October.

“The tourism industry is a vital economic driver in Greenbrier County,” said Kara Dense, executive director of the CVB. “These statistics show how important tourism is to our county’s businesses and families.”

Among the CVB's findings:

Tourism supports 2,460 jobs and nearly $87 million in earnings;

Tourism generates over $1.8 million in local government revenue and $14.2 million in state revenue;

Visitors spent $214 million spent in 2008;

Tourism saves each household in the state over $700 in taxes each year.
