2018 Savers Credit

Give Yourself Some Credit!

The Saver’s Credit could pay you back in retirement — and at tax time! If your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is $63,000 or less, you may qualify!

If you don’t think you can afford to save for retirement, think again. Contributing to your retirement plan account at work could reduce your federal income tax and you could also get back up to $2,000 when you file your federal tax return.

The Saver’s Credit is like a rebate: Depending on your income and tax filing status, it’s worth as much as 50% of every dollar you save for retirement (up to $4,000 for married taxpayers who each save at least $2,000 and file jointly; up to $2,000 for single filers).

Here’s how much it could mean to you, based on your adjusted gross income (AGI) for 2018:

Married Filing Jointly  Head of Household  Single and Others*  Savers Credit
AGI up to $38,000AGI up to $28,500AGI up to $19,00050% of your contribution
$38,001 - $41,000$28,501 - $30,750$19,001 - $20,50020% of your contribution
