RETIREMENT SAVERS CREDIT

If you are able to make a contribution to your IRA or 401K Plans (including elective deferral) you may be eligible for a non-refundable credit (Retirement Savers Credit) on your income tax return.

There are adjusted gross income limitations. You are eligible for a portion of the credit if you are married filing jointly and your AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) is $53,000 or less. If single, your AGI needs to be $26,500 or less.


HOME MORTGAGE HELP
