You may be interested in taking advantage of the record COLA rise if you plan to file taxes in 2023. New tax laws could even raise your tax brackets in 2023.

Maximum credit for adoptions

The federal government in the United States has increased the adoption credit over the years. The maximum credit for qualified adoptions is $14,890 per child in 2022. The credit is non-refundable. It can be used to offset taxes, but not erase tax liability. The amount of credit that you can claim each tax year will depend on your income. Any remaining credit can be carried over to the next tax year.

This credit may be available to American citizens, as well foreign residents and children who have special needs. These children could also be eligible for the higher credit amount depending on their situation. You must also consider the child’s health and medical requirements. Tax credits can be claimed for qualified expenses during the year of adoption. The following examples will show you how much credit can be claimed for adoptions in 2022.
Maximum credit permitted for education expenses

The American Opportunity Tax Credit can reduce your tax bill up to $2,500 annually. The credit covers up to $2,000 of eligible education expenses. These include school fees, books, supplies and transportation. For undergraduate students, their parents and children can receive the credit for up to 4 years. Parents of students who are students can also claim the education tax credit. Here are some of the ways you can get this tax credit.

A taxpayer can claim a maximum credit of $2,500 for each student. The credit is calculated based on the first $2,000 in college expenses for single filers, and $118,000 if married couples file jointly. You can claim the credit for tuition, textbooks, required course material, and other eligible expenses up to four year. There is no cap on how much education expenses can be claimed. Credit may also not be spread over multiple years.
Maximum credit to long-term capital gains

Investors can enjoy long-term capital growth rates as a real reward. These rates are a great way to lower your taxes. They’re available in four tax brackets: 15%, 20%, 0% and 15%. Additionally, the IRS has raised the income thresholds for each bracket to allow you make more before being tipped into the next bracket. How can you get the maximum credit available for long-term capital gain in 2022, and what are your options?

For example, a married couple filing jointly in 2022 will have $70,000 of other taxable income after deductions and $20,000 in long term capital gains. The tax rate cutoff to both long-term capital gain and qualified dividends is $83,350. Because the credit for future capital gain is used, the 15% tax rate they pay on the $6650 left will be only 15%.
