Those over 59 1/2, with an IRA, can do a partial Roth conversion to create additional tax liability. Convert just enough of your traditional IRA to a Roth IRA to reach the $7500 tax liability. Say you are retired and buy a new Leaf, qualifying for the $7500 Federal tax credit. If your Federal tax liability is $6000, you would be forfeiting the extra $1500 of tax credit. Use the partial Roth conversion strategy to create the additional $1500 of tax liability. You'll have to pay tax on your IRA, eventually. Why not get it back in the form of an EV tax credit?
