Elderly or Disabled Tax Credit is a tax benefit provided by the IRS in the US. It is designed to assist low-income elderly or disabled individuals by reducing their tax liability.
The credit ranges between $3,750 and $7,500. The amount of credit can vary depending on your income, filing status & whether you qualify as elderly or disabled.
You must be either 65 years or older by the end of the tax year or permanently and totally disabled and received taxable disability income to be eligible for the credit.
Tax credit is calculated as 15% of the initial amount, less the total of any nontaxable benefits you have received (Social Security and other nontaxable pensions or annuities).
