I bought a home in 2014. Can I claim the homebuyer credit?

Question: I purchased a home in 2014.  Can I claim the homebuyer credit? (Or I purchased a home in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021)

Answer: No, the first-time homebuyer credit is NO longer available.  Only homes purchased in 2009, 2010, or 2011 to first-time homebuyers were qualified for the homebuyer credit.  The maximum amount of the homebuyer credit was $8,000.

However, you can still deduct/itemize any home mortgage interest paid and real estate tax you paid, up to $10,000.
