The extension applies only to transactions that have approved contracts in place as of April 30, 2010 and have not yet closed. The legislation should create a seamless extension and the new closing deadline for eligible transactions is now September 30, 2010. There will be no gap between June 30, 2010 and the date the President signs the bill into law.
