Difference between the refundable and nonrefundable tax credit
A tax credit can mainly reduce the amount of tax someone owes. This mainly makes the tax refund even bigger. There are some differences between refundable and nonrefundable tax credits.
- A nonrefundable credit is the type of credit that mainly can’t be used to increase their tax refund. This is mainly to create a tax refund when someone does not already have one. In other ways, the amount of savings is not going to exceed the amount of tax someone owes.
- Refundable tax credits are mainly treated as the payments of tax someone made during the year. When the total of these credits is more than the tax someone owes, the IRS will mainly send the taxpayer the tax refund for the difference.
