On Are Clean Energy Tax Credits Equitable?

These are tax credits, not deductions, so this correlation between credit amounts and income is not mechanically introduced by increasing marginal tax rates. Nor are these tax credits in some way a flat percentage of income. Like other tax credits, these are applied dollar-for-dollar against a filer's tax liability. They are non-refundable tax credits, however, as discussed above, so you can't claim these credits if you have zero tax liability.
