Kentucky Housing- KHC Loan Programs

Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC)

The Kentucky Housing Corporation provides purchase financing funds for qualified buyers in Kentucky who have not owned their own home in the most recent three years or who buy in defined, Target Areas. The KHC program interest rate is typically below market and may be used with Conventional, FHA, VA or RHS loans. Down payment assistance may also be available from KHC. Household income limits and price limits apply. We were the first lender to be delegated by KHC to underwrite loans for approval and closing and are the Top Lender for KHC.

 

KHC Loan Programs

•All Kentucky Housing first mortgage loans are for a 30-year term at a fixed rate of interest.

•The home you purchase through Kentucky Housing must be the only residential property you own and you must occupy the home as your principal residence while the loan debt is still outstanding.

•To qualify, you must meet KHC’s regular income guidelines, make a down payment or qualify for down payment assistance, be a US citizen or legal alien and have an acceptable credit history.

•Some Kentucky Housing loans are subject to a federal recapture tax. Recapture is a federal income tax that the borrowers may have to pay if they have considerable growth in their income and they sell or transfer their KHC-financed home within 9 years. However, KHC has implemented a Recapture Tax Guarantee Program for all loans that close after October 1, 2006. The Recapture Tax Guarantee Program will reimburse homeowners if they are subject to pay the Federal Recapture Tax on their KHC mortgage loan upon the sale of their home.

Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCC)

A Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCC) reduces the amount of federal income tax you pay, giving you more available income to qualify for a mortgage loan. MCCs are NOT mortgages. They are tax credits that put extra cash in your pocket each month, so you can more easily afford a house payment. That means fewer tax dollars will be withheld from your regular paycheck, increasing your take-home pay. The federal government allows every homeowner an income tax deduction for all the interest paid each year on a mortgage loan. But an MCC gives you a tax credit of 25 percent (not to exceed $2,000). You can still deduct the remaining 75 percent interest on your income taxes. A tax credit is not the same as a tax deduction. A tax deduction reduces the portion of your income that is taxed, so you pay less. A tax credit is a direct, dollar for dollar reduction in the total tax you owe. The MCC is effective for the life of the loan as long as you live in the home. If you sell your home in the first nine years of ownership, you may be subject to Federal Recapture Tax.
