Greetings, Isaac, and welcome. You asked:<<We are planning to withdraw money from my IRA towards down payment for our first home. I understand that the limit is $10000. Is this limit per person or if my wife is a joint owner of the house, can she too use upto $10000 from her IRA leading to a total of $20000?>>The once in a lifetime use of $10K for a home purchase is an individual limit. Therefore, both you and your spouse may use your own IRAs to take up to $10K each ($20K total) for this purpose. Bear in mind that you will pay income tax on the amounts taken, but no penalty.Regards..Pixy
