Savers credit, I never hear a lot of people talk about it, partly because it really is for the lower income. So if you’re married making less than $73,000 and you put money into a 401k or an IRA or a Roth or whatever, you can save up to $2,000, $4,000 for a married couple. Head of household, you have to have less than $54,750, single $36,500. Single people get up to 50% of what you contribute, up to $2,000. That’s a lot of money, especially if you have the ability to set it aside. That again can be a 401k, an IRA, a Roth, anything that you can set aside the money for later savings.
