There are a lot of things to love about being a parent, but the increased expense that comes along with your bundle of joy probably isn't at the top of your list. Fortunately, the government tries to ease this burden a little by offering several tax breaks to parents, so that they can keep more of their money to provide for their children.
Your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI), which is your adjusted gross income (AGI) with certain tax deductions added back in, must also be below $200,000 for single adults or $400,000 for married couples in order to claim this credit. High-income households may still claim this credit, but for every $1,000 that their MAGI exceeds the thresholds listed above, their Child Tax Credit will decrease by $50. So if you're a single adult earning $210,000 per year, you'd only be eligible for a $1,500 Child Tax Credit.
Single adults with AGIs under $80,000 and married couples with MAGIs under $160,000 are eligible for the full American Opportunity Tax Credit. Those with MAGIs exceeding these thresholds will see their credit phased out until they reach $90,000 or $180,000, respectively, for single and married filers, at which point they are no longer eligible for the credit.
You must have a MAGI of less than $58,000, or $116,000 if filing jointly, to claim the full credit. You can get a reduced credit if your MAGI exceeds these thresholds, but individuals with a MAGI over $68,000 and married couples with a MAGI over $136,000 cannot claim this credit.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA; P.L. 111-5) created the category for families with three or more children, with a credit rate of 45%, for tax years 2009 and 2010 only. The ARRA also increased the phase-in amount for married couples filing joint tax returns so that it is $5,000 higher than for unmarried taxpayers in tax year 2009, and $5,010 in tax year 2010.
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable tax credit available to eligible workers earning relatively low wages. Under current law there are two categories of EITC recipients: childless adults and families with children. Because the credit is refundable, an EITC recipient need not owe taxes to receive the benefits. However, a low-income individual or family must file a tax return to receive the EITC. An EITC-eligible family may also receive a portion of the credit in the form of advanced payments.2 Eligibility for, and the size of, the EITC is based on income, age, and the presence of qualifying children. Several policy and legislative issues are associated with the EITC: compliance, the use of refund anticipation loans, marriage penalty, and poverty relief (family size).
In the 1999 study, 24.9% of over-claims (with the errors known) were due to the child claimed not meeting the EITC requirements for a qualified child. The most common qualifying child error was that the child did not meet the residency test (living with the tax filer for at least six months in the case of certain blood relatives, or one year for other individuals). The second most common error was the child not meeting the relationship (to the tax filer) test, particularly in the case of foster children where the child did not live with the tax filers for the full year or was not cared for as the tax filer's own child.
The structure of the EITC may, depending on the relative income levels of both parties, impose a "marriage penalty"6 on single low-income parents if they choose to marry. For example, in tax year 2012, two single parents, each with one child and earned income of $15,000 would each receive an EITC of $3,169 for a total of $6,338. If they marry, their combined income is $30,000, and with two children, the EITC is $3,614. The EITC marriage penalty for the couple is $2,724 (the difference between $6,388 and $3,614). The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (EGTRRA; P.L. 107-16) provided marriage penalty relief for the EITC by raising the phase out income level of the EITC for married couples. The American Recovery and Relief Act of 2009 (ARRA; P.L. 111-5) temporarily increased the marriage penalty relief for the EITC by raising the phase out income level by $5,000 for married couples in 2009 and indexing the $5,000 for tax year 2010. While the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA; P.L. 112-240) made the EGTRRA provisions for marriage penalty relief permanent, the increase in marriage penalty relief to $5,000 (indexed for inflation) made by ARRA was extended for only five years (the expansion will sunset on December 31, 2017).
The differential in the EITC based on the number of children, combined with the annual inflation adjustment, is designed to help families stay above the poverty threshold over time. However, because the EITC adjustment for family size is limited to two children, over time larger families may not be kept above the poverty threshold. As shown in Table 1, for tax year 2011, married couples with children earning $25,000 a year have net income after taxes that is above the poverty threshold. However, the extent to which income exceeds the poverty threshold declines as the number of children increases.7
The ARRA (P.L. 111-5) created a new credit rate for taxpayers with three or more eligible children, and this new credit rate was extended through tax year 2017 by ATRA (P.L. 112-240). For tax years 2009 through 2017 only, taxpayers with three or more eligible children will use a credit rate of 45% to calculate their EITC.
ATRA (P.L. 112-240) made these EGTRRA changes permanent. The ARRA created the category for families with three or more children, with a credit rate of 45%, for tax years 2009 and 2010 only. The ARRA also increased the phase-in amount for married couples filing joint tax returns so that it is $5,000 higher than for unmarried taxpayers in tax year 2009, and indexed for inflation beginning in tax year 2010. The ARRA changes were also scheduled to expire on December 31, 2010.
These worthless tax tips are not viable for working people since the government limitations hit married couples that work not only with additional taxes versus single couples who live together but add additional limitations on their ability to use any and all of these junky deductions.
Tina (Mangola) Martinez is the first person in ONU history to participate in the College World Series both as a coach and player and was a two-time All-American and three-time First Team All-OAC honoree during her playing days with the Polar Bears. As a freshman in 2007, Martinez was the triple crown winner in the OAC, leading the league in home runs (12), RBI (49) and batting average (.489). She currently ranks third all-time at ONU with 38 career home runs, is third with 169 RBI, is sixth with a .414 career batting average and is fifth with 217 base hits from 2007-10. Upon graduating, Martinez worked as the assistant softball coach at Washington University before returning to ONU to take the same position for the 2012 season, when the Polar Bears made their trip to the College World Series. She was the head softball coach at Transylvania University in 2014 before becoming a middle school teacher in Florida. She returned to ONU as assistant softball coach in 2016 and helped guide the Polar Bears to an OAC championship in 2018.

Those five honors are the second-most in NCAA history across all levels. She was a 2010 Clyde Lamb Award winner, and her No. 9 jersey was retired in 2019. Watson also earned First Team Academic All-America honors in both her junior and senior seasons and was a three-time Academic All-OAC honoree. She currently lives in Columbus and works for Nationwide Insurance. She is married to Corry Watson, and the couple has a 1-year-old son, Jordan.
