IRS Allows Direct Discount on EV Tax Credit at Point of Sale

Buyers had to wait until tax season to claim the EV tax credit, which reduced their tax payments. The credit now discounts the sale price if buyers fulfill the Democrats’ $740 billion Inflation Reduction Act’s income restrictions. Without income verification, buyers can “transfer” credit to the dealer for the discount.

For 2024, EV buyers can get $300,000 for married couples filing jointly, $225,000 for heads of households, and $150,000 for others.

Dealers operate the point-of-sale immediate EV refund program, and the IRS does not verify income. Instead, buyers must promise compliance. IRS plans to produce an example disclosure form for dealers to disclose income limits to buyers.
