    You can phone the IRS. They are friendly, courteous, and can answer all such tax questions.

    Turbo tax will take care of no problem. You'll need the VIN number purchase date etc.

    HR block was easy. Just got my $7,500 back. $10,000 total for Cali. Not too bad.

    The CA $2500 is now income restricted so not 10k for everyone.

    The income cap was lowered for cars purchased after 10/31. If you make over 300K (Joint filers) and 150K (Single filers), you can kiss the California rebate bye.
