2022 Tax Changes

The Child Tax Credit for 2022 is worth up to $2,000 per child. There is an earned income requirement, and it is a limited refundable of $1,500. As a result many taxpayers will face lower refunds for tax year 2022. Estimate, calculate your Child Tax Credit or read this detailed publication on the CTC.
The 2022 maximum Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit is $2,100, down from $8,000 for tax year 2021. This change will reduce tax refunds for 2022. Estimate, calculate your Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit or read this detailed publication on the CDCTC.
For tax year 2022, there are no recovery rebate credits available as compared to tax year 2020 and 2021. Stimulus 1 and 2, or associated recovery credit rebates, can only be claimed by filing a 2021 tax return or amendment. For Stimulus 3 and the recovery credit rebate, a 2021 return or amendment has to be filed. A stimulus 4 payment package has not been issued.
For 2022 the additional or "above-the-line charitable deduction" worth up to $300 for single filers and $600 for married joint filers is no longer available. The itemized deduction for charitable donations remains for 2022.
For 2022, the income reporting requirements for Form 1099-K did not change for 2022 as initally proposed by the IRS. This change would have increased the number of tax forms issued to gig economy and independent contractors drastically.
The IRS has not processed all of the 2020 and 2021 tax returns. This might create AGI verification issues for taxpayers and their 2022 tax returns. The National Taxpayer Advocate issued a warning to lawmakers in their annual report to Congress that the backlog creates “challenges and delays for the 2023 tax filing season for taxpayers.”
