Tax Credit Questions

Tax credit may refer to any amount of money that may be deducted from the total amount that an individual may have to pay in the form of taxes. This credit may apply to almost all kinds of taxes like income tax, property tax or Value Added Tax (VAT). In some situations, these credits may be given as refund if an individual pays more than what is required as tax. Many times people may not understand these credits and may have questions regarding them. Given below are some important questions about tax credits that have been answered by the Experts.

What is the method to claim credit on taxes in the U.S. if the individual has paid tax in a foreign country on the sale of foreign property?

If an individual is filing the tax as single, they may claim the credit directly on line 47 of form 1040 if the credit amount is less than $150. If the individual is filing the returns as married filing joint, then the amount may be less than $300.

Will a person get tax credit for trading in his/her car?

In most situations, a person may not get federal tax credit for trading in his/her car.

Is there a special tax credit for public school teachers?

In many cases, a special tax credit may not be available for public school teachers.

What is the criteria for Mortgage Credit Certification?

In order to be eligible for the Mortgage Credit Certification, individuals and families must fulfill the criteria given below:

  • Income and home purchase requirements must be met.
  • The individuals and families may not have owned a home as a primary residence for at least 3 years
  • The qualifying requirements of the mortgage loan must be met
  • The home must be used as the primary residence.

Can educational credit be carried forward?

Can a person deduct gasoline expenses from their tax returns?

What is the meaning of dependant tax credit?

Dependant tax credit is the credit that is provided to people for money paid to childcare providers. It is a tax credit that includes child care expenses for an individual who works either as a self employed person or as an employee of a company.

In New Zealand will it be legal for an accountant to keep a person’s tax credit with himself/herself without informing the person?

The accountant may not take a person’s tax credit without informing the owner of the tax credit unless there is an agreement or contract that permits this. If there is no contract, he/she may have to give the accountant the credit. If the person owes the accountant any money, this may be claimed using other legal options. If the accountant has been using the credit, the individual may file a complaint against the accountant with the Financial Dispute Resolution (FDR). The owner may also report it to the New Zealand Association of Certified Public Accounts (NZCPA) and file a complaint with them.

Under what circumstance would a person be expected to repay the $8000 tax credit?

A person may be expected to repay the $8000 tax credit if the home that he/she lives in is not the primary residence for a period of 36 months from the date it was purchased. There may be no time limit to repay the credit and it may be done at any time.

Understanding tax credits can be difficult at times and you may sometimes need the help of a professional to figure out if you qualify for it and how much you may get. Not finding answers or help easily to your questions in such situations can be frustrating. You may ask an Expert if you have any questions about tax credits and need help in understanding them.
