Electric vehicle federal tax credit

Who claims the credit for a new EV? Can I claim it or is it claimed by the dealer? If this is claimed by the dealer has anyone successfully convinced a dealer ( in CA or AZ) to pass the credit to you? The 7500 federal credit looks too good.

A billion and first thread on this.


Neither. Claimed by the captive. They either include it in an incentive from the manufacturer or they don’t. You don’t get a say in the matter. The dealer doesn’t get a say in the matter.
