First Time Home Buyer Savings Accounts

Exciting news for first time home buyers!

During the short 2018 Legislative Session, the Oregon Legislature took a significant step toward addressing the state’s affordable housing crisis by passing House Bill 4007, establishing a First-Time Home Buyer Savings Account program statewide.

The program will allow Oregonians to take a state tax deduction for saving money towards a down payment and other related costs associated with the purchase of their first home. The program takes applies to tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2019.

  • The funds in the account would have to be used for a down payment or other closing costs associated with purchase or construction of a home.

  • The account can be opened at any Oregon bank or credit union.

  • The savings account would be available to people who have never owned a home or those who have not owned a home in the last three years.

  • Families could save up to $50,000 including deposits and interest earned on the account over a span of 10 years.
