Not true. Someone making $50k/year pays $1855 + 15% so that's a federal tax liability of over $9k. Of course realistically they're going to have deductions, but point is a gross income of say $65k+ should realize the full credit amount.
Not much sense in having a discussion with someone who writes, "realistically they're going to have deductions" but then completely ignores those deductions to make an unrealistic argumentative point :\
Everybody's situation is different. That's why we hire experts and professionals to do things we aren't skilled at, like CPA's to do your taxes.
Some people here are fanatics, and want everyone else to be driving an electric car too, for whatever altruistic reason or agenda they have of their own.
Once the tax credits and subsidies are gone, we will see how Electric cars stand, on their own true merits. I won't personally be looking forward to solar farms all over California, myself, to power all these cars. Waiting to see how it will affect the electrical utility infrastructure, and it being a government regulated and controlled resource. I see that as problematic, compared to oil companies, providing gas and diesel at free market prices. Can't put solar panels on the townhouse roof where I live, but given a choice, I would love to be off the grid.
