Don't overlook these!
Updated for 2012
Form 8910, Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit: Use this form to claim the credit for certain alternative motor vehicles or plug-in electric vehicle conversions.
You must be the original purchaser of a new qualifying vehicle to claim the credit. The credit is not allowed for a used vehicle.
The IRS acknowledges certifications made by the vehicle manufacturers that certain models qualify for a credit. You may generally rely on the manufacturer's certification that the specified credit amount is allowable.
The instructions on Form 8910 will have a list of qualifying models and the allowable credit amounts for 2012.
If you lease the vehicle, you don't get the credit; the leasing company may claim the credit.
