    Will Model X Qualify for Tax Credit in 2024? Or disqualified because of battery requirements?

    Does anyone know if the Model X meets the battery guidelines that the federal government requires for a tax credit starting in 2024? Wondering if NOW is the best time to buy because of 1. New Price (under $80,000) & 2. Tax Credit Eligibility. I understand that if the price increases, the...

    How to get your money back on the tax you pay when ordering online?

    Hey All, There are 5 states that don't have sales tax: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon. I live in one of those states. NH has no EV tax credits and there happens to be NO Tesla stores so I have to go out of state for delivery and pick up. Can I still request a tax credit...

    Tax Forum 8936

    Hello, I just wanted to reach out to verify I understand the wording of the tax forum. Reading the instruction for number 4, in my opinion, it is a little confusing. I purchased the model 3 between January 1, 2019 - July 31, 2019. For the following: 4a = $7,500 4b = 50% 4c = $3,750 I was...

    Switching from LR AWD to P3D- for faster delivery?

    Hi guys. I'm pretty new to the idea of the Stealth Performance Model 3, but looking around at the order tracking thread & the waiting room threads, it sounds like people get matched with VINs pretty quickly for them. I have a LR AWD ordered 11/27 and no VIN yet. I'm kind of out in the middle of...

    Tesla - Post Tax Credit

    I'm very happy overall with my Tesla, but I can't help but feel taken advantage of. I took delivery of a mid-range model 3 with premium package in late 2018. At that time it was about 47k + Tax, and I took advantage of the 7.5k tax credit. Nowadays, the standard model 3 is pretty much the...

    Tax Credit for the customer or Tesla?

    Guys I'm confused. I thought Elon said the price of the car wouldn't change with or without a tax credit. As far a I can see, anyone who listened to that got taken for a ride and had to pay extra taxes, insurance, registration. I bought a Mid range in Dec and since that time. It worth about 60...

    I bought the model 3 October 4th 2018 and the tax credit has been halved since then. Am I still eligible for the full 7500 in tax credit?

    AWD, 200,000th, and Tax Credit

    Hi, Been trolling TMC for some time now. Decided to join and this is my first post. I'm a 4/1/16 reservationist in the Bay Area that has been waiting on a RWD. When they dropped the AWD price by $1K and generisized the delivery window last week, I configured as AWD on 6/28 but wonder if that...

    Non-Repeal of Tax Credit on Tax Bill Conference Agreement

    I downloaded the Tax Bill Conference Agreement, and on page 568 of 1097 pages I found the following section. My take (as well as Bloomberg, Fortune, and CleanTechnica) on this is that the repeal of the $7,500 tax credit did not make it into the final conference agreement. Here below is the...

    Frustrated by Dual Motor Delay?

    I have a March 31 reservation and live in Ohio. This means that I could potentially get a RWD car either late 2017 or early 2018--likely within the full Federal tax credit window. Unfortunately, it seems that by the time a dual motor version of the car is available for purchase, the Federal...

    Colorado Tax Credit and Financing

    Two questions: 1. Does anyone know if Tesla is applying the $5000 Colorado tax credit during the purchase? I know Colorado made this an option starting in 2017, so I'm wondering if Tesla is taking advantage of that. 2. My reservation is under my name, but I'll probably do the financing under...

    Owning an M3 "for free?"

    For people who will get their cars the earliest, is it possible that I could buy the M3 (for say $45k), have it for a year, take the tax credits (-$10k in my state) and then sell it after a year for roughly the $35k total that I spent after the tax rebate? Since the tax credits will be much...

    H&R Block Tax Credit Issues

    I tried doing my taxes this weekend using H&R Block (I always TurboTax in previous years). I decided to use H&R Block for the 10% Amazon refund bonus. It's not worth the headache. The only EV tax credit that H&R Block seems to support is the $7500 federal tax credit (30%). It does not support...

    Ways to benefit from tax credit without taking it?

    I'm coming close to buying a MS. This year, it would at best be very difficult to get any benefit from the tax credit. I'm very hesitant about buying new, as I feel like I would be throwing that money away. I'm looking to keep the car for at least 5+ years, likely longer. AP is a must-have. I...

    Another Bonus from Tesla's Stepped-up Model 3 Production Schedule

    Tesla's new objective to move the 500K vehicles/per year from 2020 to 2018 has many implications. But here's one that may not be so obvious: 1. By 2020, Tesla would have most likely passed the 200K US shipment mark and begun the phase-out cycle for the customer $7,500 tax credits. Perhaps only...

    Federal tax credit when moving to the US

    Hi everyone, I am about to move to the US and intend to get the Model S as my car. Very excited about it! I am not entirely sure when exactly I will "officially" be in the US from a tax perspective as it depends on how long it takes to get my visa and such sorted out. I would expect it to...
