Adoption Credit and Adoption Assistance Programs
Tax benefits for adoption include both a tax credit for qualified adoption expenses paid to adopt an eligible child and an exclusion for employer-provided adoption assistance.
Child and Dependent Care Credit
You may be able to claim the child and dependent care credit if you paid work-related expenses for the care of a qualifying individual.
Education Tax Credit-Claim It
Find out how you or your child can get a tax credit for going to college or some other post-secondary education institution. Get even more information at IRS.gov/recovery.
Excess Social Security and RRTA Tax Withheld
Most employers must withhold social security tax from your wages. Certain government employers (some federal, state, and local governments) do not have to withhold social security tax.
First-Time Homebuyer Credit
You may be able to take the first-time homebuyer credit if you were an eligible buyer who purchased a home as your primary residence in 2008, 2009 or 2010. Eligibility varies depending upon the year of your purchase.
