Tax Credit vs. Tax deduction

direct, dollar-for-dollar reduction in tax liability, as distinguished from a tax deduction, which reduces taxes only by the percentage of a taxpayer's Tax Bracket. (A taxpayer in the 33% tax bracket would get a 33-cent benefit from each $1 deduction, for example.) In the case of a tax credit, a taxpayer owing $10,000 in tax would owe $9,000 if he took advantage of a $1,000 tax credit.

 

A dollar for dollar reduction in the amount of tax that a taxpayer owes. Unlike deductions or exemptions, which reduce the amount of income subject to tax, a credit reduces the actual amount of tax owed.

 

Deductions and exemptions only reduce the amount of your income that is taxable. Tax credits reduce the actual amount of tax owed.
