Don’t Lose Your Refund by Not Filing, even if it’s after the filing deadline.

How Credits and Deductions Work

It's important to determine your eligibility for tax deductions and tax credits before you file.

  • Deductions can reduce the amount of your income before you calculate the tax you owe.
  • Credits can reduce the amount of tax you owe or increase your tax refund.
  • Certain credits may give you a refund even if you don't owe any tax.
