This four-hour course addresses the various tax issues flowing from the “Clean Car Tax Credit” that affects prospective clean vehicle purchasers, current vehicle owners, car dealers who sell and lease these vehicles. The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 made numerous changes to the tax credits provided for qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicles. Various publications and alerts have set forth general advanced information that have created some misconceptions regarding the various rules about the tax credit. Beyond the general guidelines, there are multiple complex limitations, qualifications, restrictions, etc. that prospective buyers, clean vehicle owners, clean car vehicle dealerships and tax preparers may not fully understand. This course will provide clarification of the rules relating to the credit and produce better informed buyers and current owners and car dealerships and tax practitioners that will enhance the quality of service they provide to their customers and clients. Our panel will also identify the areas that seem to be unclear, in light of IRS guidance to date.
