First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account

Our main goal is helping customers achieve their financial goals, and homeownership is often chief among those goals. In 2017, Iowa Legislature passed a law that created a new income tax credit for first-time homebuyers. The tax credit can be accessed through the use of a homebuyer savings account, which can be set up and maintained at United Bank & Trust. To qualify for the tax deduction, the homebuyer must be a first-time homeowner who has not previously owned – either individually or jointly – a single or multifamily residence in the previous three years.

Here's how it works:

  • Open a United Bank & Trust Savings Account
  • You can make unlimited deposits each year to the homebuyer savings account
  • The income tax deduction is limited to $2,000 per year when filing individually and $4,000 per year when filing jointly
  • Interest earned on account balances is exempt from state income tax
  • Accounts can be opened with the account holder as the beneficiary of the funds or another person can be named as beneficiary. For example, a parent could open an account in his/her name and name a child as the beneficiary.  The designated beneficiary must be a first time homebuyer.
  • The maximum amount that qualifies for the exemption will be adjusted annually for inflation
  • The money within an account is available for up to 10 years to be used for the qualifying purchase costs of a single-family residence
