Taxes - My Tax Return

What's the difference between a credit and a deduction?

Credits reduce your income tax dollar for dollar. Deductions reduce your taxable income which is then taxed at a specific rate. $1000 of deductions at the 15% bracket is only worth $150. Therefore credits are more powerful than deductions.
