Fresno, CA 93888

Norman Said:Is the federal government's "hybrid vehicle tax credit" worth it?
We Answered:Well, the US Federal Income Tax credit for Toyota/Lexus is still available. It hit the trigger point last year to begin reducing in amount depending on when you purchase your new Toyota/Lexus hybrid, but did not "run out" last year. The amount drops to zero for purchases on/after Oct. 1, 2007. The amount also depends on the hybrid model you purchase, and if you are subject to AMT.
Purchases now through Sept. 31, 2007 for a new Toyota Prius are eligible for a US Federal income tax credit of $787.50. (less if you hit AMT - consult a tax professional (which isn't me!).)
Used Prius do not qualify for the credit, and the leasing company
gets the credit if you lease...
Individual states or cities may offer incentives as well (income tax credit or a deduction, reduced sales tax, free metered parking, reduced tolls, single-occupant HOV lane usage, etc.)
Hybrids do cost less in the long term than their conventional counterparts. (Intellichoice used a 5 year ownership comparison) See:
and recently was listed by Consumer Reports as one of its 10 best bets for a car to own over the long term:
I'll note that there was a mathematical error in the initial publication of Consumer Reports' hybrid vehicle cost analysis, which a retraction was published later... http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11637968/
In the corrected version, the Prius does come out cheaper in 5 years.
Since the production for the Prius is up, and very few dealerships have lines anymore (most have Prius on the lot, many at a discount). Even when the NHW20 Prius was new and in high demand, only a few slimy dealers sold them at rediculous markups (most sold at MSRP, few at less than MSRP). Search around for a deal - you'll find one if you're willing to expand to several dealers.
When the NHW20 Prius first came out, initial purchasers in late 2003 through 2004 may have actually made money (used it as an investment) by selling it barely used - demand was so high and supply was short, so some did sell their used cars at a heavy markup to inpatient people. But a car as an investment vehicle is very uncommon, as it is usually a depreciating asset. However, in the US, the Prius depreciates very slowly.
The Prius was ranked in the top 10 (and best in class) for resale value in 2007 by Kelley Blue Book:
and also in the top 10 for least depreciation in 2006 by Consumer Reports: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/cars/…
If the only reason for you to buy a hybrid is for the US Federal tax credit, then the chances are that no, the tax credit is not worth it. If, however, you are going to be purchasing a new vehicle anyways, then the benefits of going hybrid will be worth it over time. As an investment, definitely not.
Carlos Said:Do federal or state tax refunds count as income if I file my returns too late?
We Answered:If you itemized in 2004 or 2005 you will have taken a deduction for state taxes paid during those years on Schedule A. So a refund must be taxed. It goes on the front of form 1040 in the year the refund is actually received, as a rule. It does not matter that you are late in filing. If you had filed on time, any refunds would have been taxable in the year received.
If you did not itemize in a particular year, any refund received for that year is not taxable, as you did not receive any deduction for it.
Federal refunds are not taxable in any case.
By the way, you have given Uncle Sam an interest-free loan for almost 2 years (for 2004) and almost a year (for 2005). Late filers do not get paid interest on the refund.
Fred Said:How do I find out what I paid in State tax in 2004?

Ron Said:How do I e-file a 2004 federal tax return.?
We Answered:You cannot E-file past year returns or amended returns. Snail mail is the only way.
Ann Said:IRS wants copies of a NYS tax return for 2004?
We Answered:If NY is like most states, you can take a copy of your federal return and transfer most of the numbers to the state form. Give it a try. You should be able to get state tax forms on line.
