5 Credits that help determine your tax refund.

  1. Federal income tax withheld
  2. Additional Child tax Credit
  3. Earned income tax credit
  4. American Opportunities Credit
  5. Excess Social security withholding

Without any of these credits or withholding it is impossible to receive an income tax refund.  The best a taxpayer can hope for for is  a -0-  balance.
