Tax Benefits Included in GOP Plan. Surprised?

Fri Dec 22, 2017 11:37 am

Earlier there was a very active discussion here that Republican tax proposal will terminate $7,500 EV tax credit.

Yet, EV tax benefits are included in the new Republican-written tax code. As are solar subsidies. Surprised?

In a way I am...but goes to show they tried to do the "right thing" in the end.
Bet this thread doesn't get near the attention the "EV credit not included in tax bill" thread did. ;)

This isn't about the EV tax credit in Congress. It was bundled in with substantial wind and solar power incentives, and it was the latter that Senators defended. The EV credit was basically along for the ride, and survived because they were too rushed to pry it out of the legislation.

Like they would have actually pulled the credit, since it would affect US car companies (Make America Great Again). Make big demands, and throw in some scare, then you have some room to give when it comes time to bargain and get what you actually want.

Simplest explanation: Obama didn't sign it.
