What is the difference between a tax credit and tax deduction?
Tax credits directly reduce the amount of taxes you owe, giving you a dollar-for-dollar reduction of your tax liability. A tax credit valued at $1,051, for instance, lowers your tax bill by a corresponding $1,051.

Tax deductions reduce how much of your income is subject to taxes. Deductions lower your taxable income by the percentage of your highest federal income tax bracket.
