If income is more than the base amount but not more than $34,000 if single, head of household, qualifying widow
, or married filing separately living apart from the spouse for the entire year ($44,000 for joint filers), then 50% of benefits are includible in gross income.
The $1,000 credit is reduced by $50 for each $1,000 of modified AGI above $75,000 (for single, head of household or qualifying widow
filers; $55,000 for MFS; $110,000 for MFJ).
Up to 40% of the credit may be refundable, and the income limits for claiming the AOTC are generous: MAGI of $180,000 for married taxpayers filing jointly and MAGI of $90,000 for single, head of household, and qualifying widow
or widower filers.
