The IRS continues to “tune up” the list of vehicles eligible for the alternative motor vehicle credit. This credit has four components: (1) the alternative fuel motor vehicle credit, (2) the fuel-cell motor vehicle credit, (3) the lean-burn technology motor vehicle credit and (4) the hybrid motor vehicle credit. The hybrid vehicle credit—which is the component best-known to taxpayers—can be as high as $3,200. It includes consumer passenger vehicles and heavy-duty, industrial-use trucks and buses. If you qualify for 2007, claim the credit on Form 8910, Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit. Tip: Find the updated list of qualified vehicles at www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=157632,00.html.
