Federal Tax Credit for New & Used Electric Vehicles
A federal tax credit is available for new and used electric vehicles that meet requirements specified in Internal Revenue Code Section 30D.
New Vehicle Clean Credit up to $7,500.
You may qualify for a credit up to $7,500 if you buy a new, qualified plug-in EV. The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 changed the rules for this credit for vehicles purchased from 2023 to 2032. Information about new vehicles purchased in 2022 and before or for vehicles purchased in 2023 and after.
Used Vehicle Clean Credit up to $4,000.
Beginning January 1, 2023, if you buy a qualified used electric vehicle (EV) from a licensed dealer for $25,000 or less, you may be eligible for a used clean vehicle tax credit. The credit equals 30% of the sale price up to a maximum credit of $4,000. Additional Details.
The credit is nonrefundable, so you can't get back more on the credit than you owe in taxes. You can't apply any excess credit to future tax years.
Starting in January 2024, an Inflation Reduction Act provision allows consumers to transfer the tax credit to car dealers, reducing the purchase price of eligible new and used vehicles at the time of sale.
