Isakson backs tax credit legislation for homebuyers

WASHINGTON - Drawing on more than three decades of experience in the real estate industry, U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., introduced legislation Wednesday to provide a $15,000 tax credit spread out over three tax years for anyone purchasing a new home, a foreclosed home or a home where foreclosure is pending. Isakson said he believes such a tax credit would provide an immediate boost to the housing market and to the nation's economy, just as a similar tax credit did in the mid-1970s.
