As the government clarifies that not all states will receive stimulus checks akin to those distributed in 2021, certain taxpayers can still tap into significant advantages through two key channels: tax deductions and tax credits.

Tax Credits vs. Tax Deductions: Unveiling the Distinctions

MARCA explains that tax credits provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of the owed tax amount, while tax deductions, though offering a smaller benefit, reduce the taxable income.

Navigating the Landscape: What Tax Payments Can You Collect?

  1. Child Tax Credit (CTC): Families with qualifying children under 17 can claim up to $2,000 per child, with $1,600 potentially refundable.
  2. Child and Dependent Care Credit: This credit, applicable for child care expenses, allows up to 35% of $3,000 for one dependent or $6,000 for two or more dependents.
  3. American Opportunity Tax Credit (AOC): Claim up to $2,500 for tuition, books, equipment, and school fees with the AOC.
  4. Lifetime Learning Credit: Obtain 20% of the first $10,000 paid for tuition and fees, up to a maximum of $2,000.
  5. Student Loan Interest Deduction: Borrowers can deduct up to $2,500 of taxable income for paid student loan interest.
  6. Adoption Credit: Non-refundable tax exemption aiding in covering qualified adoption costs, capped at $15,950 for 2023.
  7. Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC): Offers a tax break for low- to moderate-income workers and families, ranging from $600 to $7,430.
  8. Saver’s Credit: Individuals contributing to retirement plans or ABLE accounts may collect a tax credit ranging from 10% to 50%.
  9. Residential Clean Energy Credit: Receive a 30% credit for costs associated with new, qualified clean energy property installed from 2022 to 2032.
  10. Electric Vehicle Tax Credit: Qualify for a clean vehicle tax credit if you place a new plug-in electric or fuel cell vehicle in service this year.

MARCA advises taxpayers to explore these avenues wisely, ensuring they meet eligibility criteria and understand the nuances of each benefit. As the tax landscape evolves, staying informed becomes crucial for financial well-being.
