The math with the saver’s credit is surprising simple. Because the credit to is worth 10%, 20% or 50% of the max contribution of $1,000 if you aren not married and $2,000 if you are married.
Let’s say that you earn $30,000 as a not married person, and you decide to contribute $1,000 to an eligible account. Then the value of your saver’s credit would be $500. And if you managed to contribute $10,000 to an eligible account, your credit would be worth $2,000 this is because to the cap.
And if you are as well contributing to a traditional IRA or other account that offers a tax deduction for contributions. It means that your taxable income would also be reduced by the amount of your contribution.
