Tax Credit for Car Buying

You may have heard that you can receive a tax credit for car buying. This is true, but the type of car is what is important here.

Tax credits have long been used by the United States Government to encourage activities that are deemed to be in the public interest. The concern over energy and the rising cost and political implications of oil as a fuel have led to a number of tax credits designed to encourage alternative fuels. You can receive a tax credit for buying a car if you decide to purchase one of the new Hybrid vehicles that use a combination of gasoline and alternative fuels or electrical power.

The credit is claimed on Form 8910, Alternative Motor Ve...
