Harry Gross: That $8,000 tax credit for home purchases is legit

Dear Harry: We are in the process of buying a new house. We've been married for three years and have lived in an apartment until now. The broker has told us that we'll get a tax credit on our 2009 tax return for $8,000. He wasn't sure of the details, because this is so new as part of the stimulus packages coming out of Washington. Is he just feeding us hope in order to hype-up the sale, or is this really so?
