    Special Tax Break Available for New Car Purchases This Year

    IR-2009-30, March 30, 2009
    WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced today that taxpayers who buy a new passenger vehicle this year may be entitled to deduct state and local sales and excise taxes paid on the purchase on their 2009 tax returns next year.
    “For those thinking about buying a new car this year, this deduction may give them a little more drive to make their purchase this year,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman. “This deduction enables taxpayers to buy now and get cash back later on their tax returns.”
    The deduction is limited to the state and local sales and excise taxes paid on up to $49,500 of the purchase price of a qualified new car, light truck, motor home or motorcycle.
    The amount of the deduction is phased out for taxpayers whose modified adjusted gross income is between $125,000 and $135,000 for individual filers and between $250,000 and $260,000 for joint filers.
    IRS also alerted taxpayers that the vehicle must be purchased after Feb. 16, 2009, and before Jan. 1, 2010, to qualify for the deduction.
    The special deduction is available regardless of whether a taxpayer itemizes deductions on their return. The IRS reminded taxpayers the deduction may not be taken on 2008 tax returns.

    Damn fella's,

    You should be proud that I worked my way out of the ghetto and actually made something out of myself. Your starting to treat me like my own family does. Im not rich but I worked my ass off to make a few dollars and be somewhat comfortable in my life and that wasnt til after I retired from the military.

    I applaud anyone that can survive in the military til retirement and then be lucky enough to land a good job. Of course i got medically discharged/retired after being wounded in the first gulf war. So, I feel as if I EARNED it.

    No worries, Life deals us all cards that no one knows how it all plays out. I wasnt upset about anything. But I have still busted my tail and will always carry around a reminder of my time in the desert eitherway.

    But to the OPs point everyone should take that tax break if they can get it. I wonder why they picked FEB as the starting date rather than Jan 1 of last year?

    That's probably when the legislation went through. This isn't something that just got passed, its been in effect (almost) all year.

    I had my eye on a Tacoma for a while, but made sure I sealed the deal before the end of the year so I could claim the additional deduction on my taxes. :D

    And for those of you who didn't know about the credit, I can't believe your salesperson didn't bring it up, especially if you were buying near the end of the year. The guy I bought off of definitely tried to use it as a sales tactic.
