Hey there, tax-savvy friends! Did you know that you can score some serious green (in more ways than one) by purchasing a clean vehicle? That’s right! The IRS has just released some exciting news about the Credit for Clean Vehicles. Let’s break it down together, shall we?
🚗Credit for Clean Vehicles: What’s the Deal?
Picture yourself cruising around in a new clean vehicle, not only helping the environment but also getting a tax break! If you bought a qualifying clean vehicle after August 16, 2022, you might be eligible for a tax credit of up to $7,500. But remember, you can’t get more credit than the tax you owe. Here’s a quick look at the price limits:
- Vans, SUVs, and pick-up trucks: $80,000
- Other vehicles: $55,000 These limits are based on the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) plus any additional accessories or optional equipment.
💰Income Limits: Can I Get in on This? Wondering if you can benefit from this eco-friendly tax credit? Check out the income limits based on your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI):
- Married filing jointly, qualifying surviving spouse, or qualifying widow(er): $300,000
- Head of household: $225,000
- All other filers: $150,000
Psst! MAGI is your adjusted gross income plus any foreign income you excluded.
🔋What Vehicles Qualify? The Nitty-Gritty Details So, what kind of clean vehicles are we talking about? Here are the key factors that make a vehicle eligible for the credit:
- Final Assembly: Your clean machine must be assembled in North America. Check the Department of Energy’s VIN Decoder tool to confirm the manufacturing location.

- Battery Power: The battery should have at least 7 kWh of capacity with external charging and a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 14,000 lbs.
