State offers mortgage program

The Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority now is offering Tax Advantage, a mortgage credit certificate program.

Under the program, qualifying home buyers can claim a tax credit against their federal income tax liability up to $2,000 a year. The credit is available to home buyers who remain in their home and pay down their original debt.

The borrower must meet income limits and the transaction must meet purchase price limits. The borrower must be a first-time buyer unless they are buying a home in a WHEDA target area or are a military veteran.

A WHEDA-approved lender can provide the Tax Advantage to qualifying home buyers on or after April 1 for loans closing on or after April 4.

For more information, visit wheda.com or call 800-334-6873.
