If you are an elderly adult, you may be eligible to claim the senior credit. This credit is also known as the credit for the elderly or disabled. It is a federal credit that you can apply to your tax returns if you are a qualifying senior or a disabled person and meet specific income requirements. If you qualify for this credit, it can provide you with a substantial benefit because it might pay for any taxes that you might owe, resulting in a potential tax refund. At Elder Care Direction, we can explain the senior tax credit and tell you whether or not you might be able to claim it on your tax returns.
