Use Form 8910 to figure your credit for alternative motor vehicles you placed in service during your tax year. The credit attributable to depreciable property (vehicles used for business or investment purposes) is treated as a general business credit. Any credit not attributable to depreciable property is treated as a personal credit.
Taxpayers that are not partnerships or S corporations, and whose only source of this credit is from those pass-through entities, are not required to complete or file this form. Instead, they can report this credit directly on Form 3800.
An alternative motor vehicle is a vehicle with at least four wheels that qualifies as a qualified fuel cell vehicle.
You are the owner of the vehicle. If the vehicle is leased, only the lessor and not the lessee, is entitled to the credit;
You placed the vehicle in service during your tax year;
The original use of the vehicle began with you;
You acquired the vehicle for use or to lease to others, and not for resale; and
You use the vehicle primarily in the United States.
Notice 2008-33, 2008-12 I.R.B. 642, available at www.irs.gov/irb/2008-12_IRB/ar12.html.
Unless you elect not to claim the credit, you may have to reduce the basis of each vehicle by the sum of the amounts entered on lines 13 and 17 for that vehicle.
If a vehicle qualifies for the qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle credit on Form 8936, Qualified Plug-In Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit, the vehicle does not qualify for the alternative motor vehicle credit.
