When reviewing information regarding the application of the clean vehicle tax credit, it is critical to understand that for each vehicle that qualifies for the credit the dealer must complete the appropriate form and both provide it to the buyer at the time of sale and provide it to the IRS no later than 15 days after the end of the calendar year. Dealers may find it best to implement a policy of sending all forms completed during each month to the IRS at the end of the month.
