Four tax credits to save up to $8000
Tax filing season is fast approaching, and millions of Americans are working to get all the necessary paperwork ready on time. Every year, around this time, people begin to wonder how much their tax return can bring them. The edition told in more detail The Sun.
Since 2020, Americans have been receiving higher-than-usual returns through various payouts and increased tax credits due to the pandemic.
This year, tax receipts will be slightly less, but there are still ways to maximize the amount you receive while lowering your tax bill.
1. Earned Income Tax Credit
Low to middle income households and individuals should look into the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
Eligible individuals may receive $600 this year.
Families with children are entitled to:
- 1 child, $3
- 2 children, $6
- 3 or more children - $7
This loan has actually increased significantly compared to last year, when the maximum amount was only $6.

EITC can be used to offset any taxes.
2. Tax credit for children
Along with the EITC, the Child Tax Credit (CTC) is one of the most popular loans.
Because extended CTC has not been federally renewed, the amount will revert to $2000 per eligible child.
Eligible parents must have income of $200 or less to apply for payments.
This amount is for individual filers, heads of households, and those who are married but file separately.
For couples applying jointly, this amount rises to $400.
For those with incomes above the limit, credit will be reduced by $50 for each additional $1000 of income.
Several states offer their own CTCs, so you may qualify for more money depending on where you live.
3. Solar tax credit
Homeowners and renters can charge up to $8000 to purchase energy efficient appliances.
These new tax credits come from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which went into effect in August.
In 2022, households may receive a tax credit to cover 30 percent of the cost of installing rooftop solar panels.
4. Tax credit for electric vehicles
Along with loans for solar panels, there is also a loan for those who have bought electric vehicles.
New vehicles can lead to $7500 in credits if you earn less than $150 for an individual taxpayer or $000 if you file jointly.
The car must cost less than $55 or $000 if it's a van or pickup truck.
