Uncle Sam helps you save more
Find out if you're eligible for the Saver's Credit.
The Saver's Tax Credit rewards low and moderate income taxpayers who are working hard and need more help saving for retirement. If you qualify, it gives you a federal income tax credit on your federal income tax return – just for investing for retirement through your IRA, 403(b), 457 and/or 401 plan.
The Saver's Tax Credit is a non-refundable income tax credit that could reduce your federal income tax liability to $0.
Your eligibility depends on two things: your filing status and your modified adjusted gross income.
