Re: 7500 tax credit going away asap

taxman, I have a question. this year I made 35k in futures trading profits. I have 15k in carryover losses from last year. in 2018, should I claim the 3k max towards my income first and then deduct the 12k left in carryover losses towards my 35k profits OR claim the whole 15k towards my 35k profits....

Re: 7500 tax credit going away asap

Even retired people should be able to realize enough capital gains to create $7500 in tax liability. If not, save your money and buy a gently used car. Tons of great deals on used EVs. One of my clients had nearly $100k in long term capital gains and zero tax liability. His earned income was less t...

Re: 7500 tax credit going away asap

.... 2010 to 2017 is long enough for a tax credit that large. ... But 'tax credits' to the oil barons and a military presence to make that business flow smoothly around the world should just continue forever. Oh, and the pollution we all share, and enjoy, is just part of doing that business. what t...

Re: 7500 tax credit going away asap

Your point is true, but the even deeper point is that the 7500 is being ended by a Moron for no logical reason. I have to disagree some. The tax credit served its purpose to get the ball rolling until battery prices dropped. 2010 to 2017 is long enough for a tax credit that large. the ev industry n...

Re: 7500 tax credit going away asap

you guys r missing the whole point of my post. it doesn't matter if it was a credit or deduction or whatever. the prices of the used ev always reflected the 7500 plus 2500 in cali. 10k always came off the top once used. if u look on autotrader the bolt is selling for 30k with 1500 miles. the 10k cam...

7500 tax credit going away asap

the new tax plan is going to end the deduction at once. no phasing out. they are making the tax form simple with only a couple deductions. I wonder how this will effect used prices next year when its signed into law. the only reason we were able to buy a sparke for 9k was because of all the deductio...

Bolt vs SparkE

I test drove the Bolt tonight for comparison. What a incredible car. That car was even faster than the sparke and it had that star wars jet sound when you smashed the pedal. If they have a end of the year 30% clearance, I might actually buy one. People r complaining about the seats. They were fine f...

Re: Recall notice concerning range estimation

Just had it done. Remember your software's wiped clean when you get it back. My screen was showing 51.1 mi/kWh for about 5 miles when I left the dealer. Reset it after getting groceries and it seems like a more normal 5.0 or so now. Freaked out for a bit and thought they imported the problem. Just ...
