Tax Compromise Keeps Wind and Electric-Car Credits, Source Says

December 13, 2017, 10:11 AM PSTs

House and Senate negotiators have agreed to spare the electric-vehicle tax credit and wind production tax credit in their compromise package, according to a Republican familiar with process.

As part of the $1.5 trillion House tax bill, the $7,500 electric-vehicle tax credit would have been eliminated and a the wind production tax credit would have been curtailed. The Senate bill didn’t do either, and that is part of the package set for release, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing the details before the bill is unveiled...

Fine. Relatively great news. It also doesn't include articles of impeachment.

The EV tax credit expires soon anyway so may as well leave it in to appease someone.
Better to cut the loopholes that are permanent.

Its good for Chevy Tesla Nissan the credit is not going away but it needs to be fixed or the early pioneers will soon be priced out of the market.

I would think Chevy, Tesla and Nissan would prefer the credit to go away, maybe in 2019? Once they all have used the majority of the credit, then the laggers wouldn't have the benefit and it would put everyone on a level playing field moving forward and those three would be ahead of the game.

you did not read the blog I guess. Your response is "the" theme of the blog. Losing the credit without warning only hurts "us." Those who reserved or waited and planned their finances based on that credit. As for compliance manufacturers? they have nothing or very little on the streets.

Their EV projects are on the last page of the briefing notes for the board meeting generally addressed as "yada yada" or "and the rest is unchanged from last month, so glance over it and bring up any concerns at the next meeting"
