Have there been any buyers that purchased this vehicle last year and was able to claim the full $7,500 tax credit when filing taxes? From what I have read about how tax credits work, this is a non-refundable tax credit. So if you owe less than $7,500 in taxes, then the government will NOT write you a check for the overage. The $7,500 will simply take your tax liabilities down to zero, but you are leaving money on the table (and effectively raising the cost of the Clarity). I am interested in purchasing the Clarity, but the purchase price only makes sense for me if I can claim the full $7,500 in federal and $2,000 New York State tax rebate. I'm not sure I can create a situation for myself at the end of the calendar year where I owe more than $7,500 in federal taxes. Last year, I had a hefty refund and I have adjusted the number of exemptions I am claiming this year. I'd appreciate any pointers from any tax savvy Clarity buyers in the forum. Thank you!
