How is the credit amount calculated?
The program covers 85% of a plug-in hybrid conversion up to $6,000. The Green Gears Hymotion PHEV system qualifies for the maximum $6,000 available.
Which systems are available to add to my vehicle that qualify for the tax credit?
Plug-in Hybrid systems are required to be DOT (Department of Transportation) approved, crash tested and safe to be eligible for the rebate. Hymotion is the only company that has a product that has been crash tested. The Hymotion PHEV battery system only works with GEN II Toyota Prius 2004-2009. The credit only applies to 2004-2009 vehicles in the certification process.
How do I receive the tax credit?
For individual car owners, when you file your tax return, $6,000 will be applied toward your tax payment. The great news is that you will receive the difference back from the government. For example, if you only owe $2,000 in taxes, you will receive a check for $4,000.
Is the credit available for fleet & company owned vehicles?
Yes, a direct rebate is available for non-profits and company fleet owners, but the program is different. There are limited funds so the first to sign up are most likely to receive them.
