If you’re thinking about buying an electric vehicle, you may be focused on how this could help the planet. However, there are also some financial benefits to consider. In addition to never again having to buy gas, there is an EV tax credit that can put even more money into your pocket.

What is the EV Tax Credit?

The federal government wants to encourage everybody to buy more fuel-efficient vehicles, which is why they’re offering a tax credit when you buy an EV. Some plug-in hybrid cars also qualify, so make sure to check and see if yours makes the list.

How Much is the EV Tax Credit?

While the amount varies based on the battery capacity of a car, this tax credit can be up to $7,500.

How Does the EV Tax Credit Work?

Once you know exactly how much your tax credit is, you can then deduct this amount when you do your taxes.
