Citi Benefits Handbook
Tax Credit
Depending on your income, you may be eligible to reduce your federal income tax through a tax credit based on a portion of your contributions (Before-Tax and/or Roth After-Tax Contributions) to the Plan. The credit for 2020 is:
  • 50% of the first $2,000 contributed to the Plan by an individual participant ($4,000 for married participants, filing jointly) with Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $19,500 or less ($39,000 or less if married and filing jointly);
  • 20% of the first $2,000 for individuals ($4,000 for married participants, filing jointly) with AGI between $19,501 and $21,250 ($39,001 and $42,500 if married and filing jointly); and
  • 10% of the first $2,000 for individuals ($4,000 for married participants, filing jointly) with AGI between $21,251 and $32,500 ($42,501 and $65,000 if married and filing jointly).
The IRS may change the AGI limits set forth above for future years.
To claim the credit, you must complete IRS Form 8880, "Credit for Qualified Retirement Savings Contributions." Because the Company does not give tax advice or counsel, you should consult a professional tax adviser or financial expert for advice about your circumstances.
