What do YOU see? I see a post with a signature - no P.S.

Okay, maybe you need a bigger monitor. When I click on the post, I see the PS without scrolling. I've also been around long enough to know that many posters add a PS below their signature so I expect there may be one.

And for the OP, if the credit doesn't benefit you, I don't see any reason to file the form. Just because you are eligible for a credit doesn't mean you have to take it. I often advise clients that they are eligible for a credit of $N but that the cost of tax preparation for the required form is $N+1 and let them decide whether or not to take the credit.
