What Is the IRS Saver's Credit?

The Saver's Credit is an important tax credit that many American workers who save for retirement may be missing out on. The IRS Retirement Savings Contributions Credit, also known as the Saver’s Credit, is available to eligible taxpayers who are saving for retirement through a qualified retirement plan at work or in a traditional or Roth IRA, and ABLE accounts. Workplace plans include: 401(k)s, 403(b)s, 457(b)s, 501(c)(18)s, SIMPLE IRAs, and SARSEPs. Unfortunately, 62 percent of workers are unaware of the credit, according to the 19th Annual Transamerica Retirement Survey of workers.
