Tax Deduction Consulting: New Car Deduction Wasilla AK

The credit for a new Hybrid car purchase is based on the type of car purchased and when it was purchased. One of the largest credits is given for the Toyota Prius and the amounts vary from the $3000 credit given there to a low of around $600 for certain other models. Since this is actually a credit and comes directly off the taxes owed, it has much more value than a deduction which only reduces taxable income.

Tax Deduction Consulting: New Car Deduction

New Car Tax Deduction

While you do not receive a new car tax deduction, per se, you can receive a major deduction for the sales tax paid and a credit for purchasing certain new cars.

A new car will usually have a high sales price and part of that price will usually be a sales tax. When you are itemizing deductions, you can claim this sales tax as a tax deduction.

Since this is actually a credit and comes directly off the taxes owed, it has much more value than a deduction which only reduces taxable income.

The Federal Government often uses tax credits as a means to encourage certain policies or practices that it considers to be in the public interest. This is the justification for a tax credit on Hybrid cars. The Government is recognizing the environmental concerns as well as the political implications of our dependence on fossil fuels as the major source of power for our automobiles. By encouraging the sale of Hybrids by offering this tax credit, the Government is encouraging the development of other alternative sources of fuel.

One factor that has led some people to question the commitment of the Government to this issue, despite the Hybrid new car tax credit, is the existence of the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) which is levied against an increasing number of middle income tax payers.
