Yes, that and IRAs can potentially qualify you.
Retirement Savings Contributions Credit (Saver’s Credit)
You may be able to get a tax credit for making eligible contributions to your IRA or employer-sponsored retirement plan.
Who's eligible for the credit?
You're eligible for the credit if you're:
- Age 18 or older;
- Not a full-time student; and
- Not claimed as a dependent on another person’s return.
Amount of the credit
The amount of the credit is 50%, 20% or 10% of your retirement plan or IRA contributions up to $2,000 ($4,000 if married filing jointly), depending on your adjusted gross income (reported on your Form 1040 or 1040A).
In 2017, the maximum adjusted gross income for Saver's Credit eligibility is $62,000 for a married couple filing jointly, $46,500 for a head of household, and $31,000 for all other taxpayers. The maximum credit you can claim phases out as your income increases.
