What Is the Inflation Reduction Act?
The Inflation Reduction Act is a game-changing piece of legislation. It is set to have a massive impact on inflation in the U.S. The Inflation Reduction Act will affect several areas of our economy, including prescription drug costs, health care premiums, energy costs (including lower utility bills and clean energy incentives), in addition to the federal deficit.
How Will the Inflation Reduction Act Impact EVs?
The Inflation Reduction Act includes an electric vehicle tax credit. The EV tax credit is designed to encourage consumers to purchase EVs. There is a $7,500 tax credit available to consumers who purchase qualifying new electric vehicles, and a $4,000 credit available to those who purchase qualifying used EVs. Not only does the EV tax credit serve as an incentive for consumers, but also as an incentive for automakers to manufacture qualifying electric vehicles and retailers to use the tax credit as a selling point.
