Did you know that if you are in the low-income bracket and contributing to a 401K plan that you may qualify for a tax credit? It is called the “Tax Credit for Low Income Savers” and the last time you may take this credit will be during the year 2006. This credit is in addition to the regular tax deductions allowable for the 401k plan. This is another boost to help those who are financially planning for their retirement. You should ask your accountant if you believe that you qualify for the tax credit.
