What are credits and how do I add them?

Credits are incentives offered by the government that directly reduce your tax bill. These are different from adjustments, which impact your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) and lower your taxable income.

Credits are subject to change each tax year and can be nonrefundable, refundable, or partially refundable—all of which impact your owed tax amount. Be sure to consult a tax professional on which credits apply for your situation. Some common tax credits include:

  • Child tax credit, which reduces your tax bill per child.

  • Child and dependent care credit, covering a portion of child care and similar costs.

  • Earned income credit, a credit for low- and moderate-income workers.

  • Electric vehicle tax credit, a credit from purchasing qualifying plug-in electric vehicles

If you’re a sole proprietor, add your estimated credits in Found by following these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Business tab in your Found account.

  2. Tap the Tax profile option.

  3. Tap Credits to enter the amount you will enter on your tax return.

  4. Tap Save to save your changes.
