A new rule change with the IRS and tax returns could get people a credit worth $2,000.
The saver’s credit eligibility change has created the new rule.
Individuals can see a credit of up to $1,000 and married couples could see $2,000 from the IRS.
If you’re filing jointly your combined AGI may not exceed $68,000.
Individual AGIs cannot exceed $34,000.
The income limits have gone up $1,000 since 2021 according to the IRS.
For 2021, the amounts were $33,000 for singles, $49,500 for head of household and $66,000 for married filing jointly.
The IRS increases them each year, and they were even lower in 2020.
Over half of the American population makes under $35,000 each year, meaning they could qualify.
It’s important to check the thresholds if you made more last year and did not qualify since they go up.
If you qualify, you can receive the first 10%, 20%, or 50% of the first $2,000 you save.
