We lived in our previous home 8 years. We sold that home and moved to our new home which we purchased ON (note the keyword ON) November 6th. I have read many websites, called H&R Block, called the IRS (waited for 15 min and never got an answer) and still do not know the answer to my question. We fit all of the income requirements, but the sticking point is the date. Can anyone help me out with the question?
