Tax Credit Consulting: Hybrid Vehicles Denver CO

As part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, hybrid vehicles along with energy efficient home improvements and solar energy were made eligible for substantial tax credits. Tax credits are especially valuable as they directly reduce the amount of tax owed rather than reduce the taxable amount as is the case with deductions.

Tax Credit Consulting: Hybrid Vehicles

Hybrid Vehicle Tax Credit

A hybrid vehicle is an automobile that uses electrical power coupled with a gasoline engine to produce a more fuel efficient power plant. The Hybrid Vehicle Tax Credit was designed to encourage the sales of these vehicles.

As part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, hybrid vehicles along with energy efficient home improvements and solar energy were made eligible for substantial tax credits.

After the 5th quarter, it ended completely.

The Hybrid Vehicle Tax Credit has had its intended impact on the sales and even the development of alternative energy vehicles. Some of the models have reached t...
