There seems to be some conflicting information regarding the eligibility of claiming the 'Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit' on your fedreal income taxes as the IRS 8936 form states the following requirement must be met:
"You are the owner of the vehicle. If the vehicle is leased, only the lessor and not the lessee, is entitled to the credit."
But on my lease agreement there is no mention of the $7500 credit being applied to the lease?
I've read the following article that speaks to the fact that "Compliance Cars" are the exception to this rule:

Obviously I would not take anyone's advice as the final word on what is legal to claim on my taxes but rather I'm just trying to shed some light on the confusion. Does anyone have any real world experience with this issue?
