<<<<Zero for current year income tax liability.>>>>

"What about the retirement savings credit? (Yes, I know it phases out at a low AGI)"

You are correct. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

No credit for AGI (generally speaking) above:
$25,001 or more - single or married filing separate
$50,001 or more - MFJ
$37,501 or more - HOH

A filer eligible for the saver's credit could shave as much as $1,000 off his tax bill.

Let me rephrase my initial response:

"Zero for current year income tax liability, unless you qualify for the retirement savings credit, which may save up to a maximum of $1000 in current year taxes."

Sorrowfully, JAFO
