Does anyone know the status of proposed legislation to increase the tax deduction for owners of hybrids to $4,000 (retroactively) and other possible incentives to produce and purchase hybrid vehicles? :?:
It only benefits them because they were bold enough to take a risk, while the American auto companies weren't brave enough to do the same until they saw the hybrids sell well. A case of johnny come lately if you will.hyperion said:As a tax payer I do not like the hybrid incentive tax, as you are just benefiting the Honda and Toyota motor companies. What should bring you the incentive is a car which "AVERAGES" at least 40MPG.
Their may be a better auto energy system out there and I would not like it to be overlooked by an incentive for hybrids only.
You could put it in the form of a sliding scale. More tax relief for a car driven at the same performance figures on electricity alone, ect;
