Biden Administration Alters Qualifications for EV Tax Credit

by | Jan 4, 2024 | 0 comments |

In 2024, the federal EV tax credit undergoes changes, presenting both advantages and challenges for buyers. The Biden administration introduces an instant rebate, allowing immediate access to the $7,500 credit at the point of purchase. Despite income cap requirements—$300,000 for couples, $225,000 for heads of households, and $150,000 for others—the removal of the tax liability minimum benefits those with no tax liability. However, eligibility demands that qualifying EVs be assembled in North America, with an MSRP below $55,000 for cars and $80,000 for SUVs and trucks.

The number of EVs qualifying for the tax credit is decreasing due to the new guidelines for their batteries. Batteries with materials defined as a “foreign entity of concern” (FEOC) will no longer meet the guidelines for tax credits. This is to ensure that EV car parts are American made.

An additional 30% tax credit for used EVs, capped at $4,000, targets model year 2022 or earlier vehicles, with an income cap of $150,000 and a $25,000 price limit. Business owners can explore a commercial tax credit for EVs, offering up to $7,500 for light vehicles and $40,000 for larger ones, featuring fewer restrictions than the clean vehicle tax credit. These changes signify a dynamic landscape, reflecting the administration’s commitment to domestic EV industry growth, supply chain security, and job creation.
