any taxpayer not described in paragraph (1) or subparagraph (A), the applicable percentage shall be determined under paragraph (1) except that such paragraph shall be applied by substituting for each dollar amount therein (as adjusted under paragraph (3)) a dollar amount equal to 50 percent of such dollar amount.
Inflation adjustment
In the case of any taxable year beginning in a calendar year after 2006, each of the dollar amounts in paragraph (1) shall be increased by an amount equal to -
such dollar amount, multiplied by
the cost-of-living adjustment determined under section 1(f)(3) for the calendar year in which the taxable year begins, determined by substituting "calendar year 2005" for "calendar year 1992" in subparagraph (B) thereof.
Any increase determined under the preceding sentence shall be rounded to the nearest multiple of $500.
Eligible individual

any individual who is a student (as defined in section 152(f)(2)).
Qualified retirement savings contributions

Treatment of distributions received by spouse of individual

Limitation based on amount of tax
In the case of a taxable year to which section 26(a)(2) does not apply, the credit allowed under subsection (a) for the taxable year shall not exceed the excess of -
the sum of the regular tax liability (as defined in section 26(b)) plus the tax imposed by section 55, over
the sum of the credits allowable under this subpart (other than this section and sections 23, 25D, and 30D) and section 27 for the taxable year.
