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 $38,000||AGI up to $28,500||AGI up to $19,000||50% of your contribution|
|$38,001 - $41,000||$28,501 - $30,750||$19,001 - $20,500||20% of your contribution|
|$41,001 - $63,000||$30,751 - $47,250||$20,501 - $31,500||10% of your contribution|
*Married filing separately orqualifying widow(er)
