Tax credits
The bill provides a tax credit of up to $300 for households making less than $42,000 a year.

The tax credit is meant to offset higher energy prices. While CBO says the average increased costs per household will be $175, that number varies greatly depending on income.

The poorest households will receive the full tax credit of $300, and will actually see in a yearly increase of $40 in spending power. For the richest households, the cost will be $245.
