What's the difference between a Tax CREDIT and a Tax DEDUCTION? 

A lot.

"There are a few basic differences between tax credits and tax deductions.

Tax credits provide a dollar-for dollar reduction of your income tax liability. This means that a $1,000 tax credit saves you $1,000 in taxes.

On the other hand, tax deductions lower your taxable income and they are equal to the percentage of your marginal tax bracket."*
