Im 63 not retired not on social security..live in the state of NJ, am I eligible for the $6000 credit or not? your instructions/questions are misleading
The $6,000 exclusion is a:
Special Exclusion. If you (and your spouse if filing jointly) will never be able to receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits because your employer did not participate in either program, you may qualify for the Special Exclusion. If you qualify, you can claim $6,000 (married, filing joint; head of household; qualifying widow(er)) or $3,000 (single; married, filing separate). Note: Do not claim the Special Exclusion if you (or your spouse if filing jointly) will ever be eligible for Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits.
