  1. Tax Credit on GM Demo car with 4800 miles on it.

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I've had my Volt for a year now and love it. My wife is now looking at getting one for herself; We've found a 2015 at a dealership out of state for a decent price. The dealer says it still qualifies for the tax credit, but the car has been used as a Loaner/Demo and has 4850 miles on it. They...
  2. Frustrated owner of a 2014 Volt

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Still don't have my tax credit on my 2014 Volt purchased in June of 2014. The car is nice, but this has made the entire experience pretty crappy.

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hi Folks, I was just checking the IRS website for the listing of the $7500 tax credit (30D). It was just updated on 11/04 and did not have the 2016 Volt listed. It did have the 2016 Spark EV listed and that was not there prior to the 11/04 update. Does anyone know if we will have the tax...
  4. Tax credit - 0 emission certificate?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    My red 2015 Volt is exceeding my expectations!! I just went to to accountant to get my taxes filed, and he said in order to get the Ga state tax credit that I needed a '0 emissions' signed form from my dealer saying I'd purchased the car. I'll be going over to the dealer tomorrow, but honestly...
  5. Tax Credit Hiccup

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I filed my taxes using TaxAct. Everything looked good. Full $7500 rebate calculated correctly. Efiled. IRS website shows they adjusted my refund down by about $3500 from what I was expecting. Very annoyed right now. I am not subject to AMT, so I'll just have to wait and see what the letter...
  6. IRS Form 8936 - Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The instructions on this IRS form state that you need a Manufacturer's Certification along with some other criteria if asked to substantiate your claim for the $7500 tax credit (which I have been asked to do). *** Certification and other requirements. Generally, you can rely on the...

    I just got a letter dated 8/15/2012 with an attached Tax Examiner's Review (dated 6/15/2012) and NOTICE OF DEFICIENCY. It didn't just ask for proof that I bought and obtained title to a Volt in 2011, they assumed I didn't qualify for the tax credit and ASKED FOR IMMEDIATE PAYMENT OF $5,449...
  8. IRS 8911 Charge Station Property Credit 30% Only for Business Use?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    My income tax guy is preparing my return and tells me that the 30% tax credit for the installation of a 230V charging station is only applicable for business use. I thought that I could get a 30% tax credit for the cost of my SPX 230V charge station including installation costs. My reading of...
  9. some tax software not Volt-friendly

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm not an expert on tax software, but I just wasted a lot of time with H&R Block (formerly TaxCut) 2010. After struggling a bit, I finally found a paragraph in the online help system that addresses form 8936 ("Qualified Plug-In Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit"). Here's what it says: Text...
