Clean Vehicle Credit Dealer Transfer – Did You Know?As of January 1, 2024, people who buy or lease cars or trucks that qualify for the Clean Vehicle Credit (CVC) may transfer the credit to an eligible seller (usually a dealership). The transferred credit may be used as a down payment, or exchanged for a reduction in the vehicle price. Eligible vehicles include many fully electric cars and trucks (EVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) and vehicles powered by fuel cells.To transfer the credit, you must present a government-issued photo ID, and provide the seller with information including your current address and valid taxpayer ID number. You will also need to sign a certification of eligibility for the CVC, along with pledges to file a 2024 tax return and to use the vehicle primarily for personal (not business) purposes within the U.S.In turn, the dealer must certify that the vehicle meets IRS standards for the CVC, and provide you with documentation of the date of sale, selling price and other vehicle information. Store these documents securely, as you will need to refer to them when filing your federal tax return for 2024. A tax professional can help you determine whether transferring a CVC to the vehicle seller would make sense for you.

Amended Tax Returns – Did You Know?After filing their tax returns, people may sometimes realize that they made a mistake like missing a deduction, adding incorrectly or choosing the wrong filing status. In some cases, fixing the mistake may require filing an amended return that shows both the originally reported figures and the corrected ones. However, for some errors, filing an amended return is not necessary.For example, if you made a minor math mistake on your return, IRS personnel will generally just fix the error and send you a notice explaining any resulting change to your refund or tax due. Similarly, if you neglected to include a required form with your return, the IRS will typically just send you a letter requesting that form. In these cases, filing an amended return would actually only cause confusion and further delay the processing of your refund.For other mistakes, you can use the IRS Should I File an Amended Return? tool (link below) to determine whether filing an amended return is required. If you just want to check the status of your return and/or refund, you can use the Wheres My Refund? tool.Should I File An Amended Return? https://www.irs.gov/help/ita/should-i-file-an-amended-returnWheres My Refund? https://www.irs.gov/wheres-my-refund

Tax Filing Misinformation and Scams – Did You Know?Every filing season, the IRS sees a surge in tax-related scams, including widespread circulation of false statements about tax laws and refunds across the internet. Several currently trending myths encourage people to file IRS forms with bogus information, setting up unsuspecting readers to face IRS, civil or even criminal penalties.For example, scammers recommend using software to fill out extra W-2 (Wage and Tax Statement) forms, with false income and withholding figures attributed to made-up employers. Other scams involve inventing fictitious household employees, then claiming that those employees were paid substantial medical leave benefits. The promoters of these fraudulent practices claim people can use the schemes to legally obtain large IRS refunds.In reality, IRS personnel carefully check W-2s and other tax forms against information reported by employers and other entities and individuals. Submitting false documents to the IRS can trigger very serious consequences, even if the person who filed the forms believed they were following legitimate advice. To avoid getting lured in by scammers, seek tax guidance only from a trusted tax professional.
