Answers to Common Questions

What is the Making Work Pay Credit?
The Making Work Pay Credit is a refundable tax credit that can go up to $400 for individuals and to $800 for married taxpayers.

How can taxpayers get this credit?
Even if your federal income tax withholding was reduced because of the credit, you must complete a Schedule M, Making Work Pay, and claim the credit on your income tax return to benefit from it.

What happens if I don't receive a paycheck from an employer?
You can claim the credit on your 2010 income tax return by filing a Schedule M, Making Work Pay.

What is the Government Retiree Credit?
Taxpayers can take a credit of $250 ($500 if married and both spouses qualify) if you or your spouse received a pension or annuity payment in 2010 for service performed for the U.S. Government or any U.S. state or local government, and the service was not covered by social security. But you cannot take the credit if you and your spouse both received a $250 economic recovery payment.


Tips for next year

  • In 2011, when you file your taxes for tax year 2010, complete Schedule M to see if you are eligible for the Making Work Pay and Government Retiree Credits.
  • Consider filing your taxes electronically. Filing online can help you avoid mistakes and find credits and deductions that you may qualify for. In many cases you can file for free. Learn more about e-file.
