Honda Clarity Plug in hybrid $7500 off + $7500 tax rebate until 7/8 YMMV $19320

Currently Honda is offering a $6k purchase or lease credit on any new clarity plug-in hybrid.

Purchase a Clarity or Clarity touring and get $6k Honda credit ( to dealer for purchase, can be passed to you) or passed to you for lease in lieu of $7500 federal tax credit for leases.

Normally the $6k should be for lease but applies to finances or purchases until 7/8/19.

Essentially you get $6k +$7.5k off for any purchase + any discount you negotiate.

Most dealers are taking up to $1500 off. YMMV. If you are in a state with high documentation fee please back that off the price, it's dealer profit.

Sample deal:
MSRP: 34,320
Honda discount 6000
Dealer discount 1500
Tax rebate : 7500
Price : $19320 for base model
https://automobiles.honda.com/cla...QMQAvD_BwE

Additional state incentives : https://automobiles.honda.com/cla...-in-hybrid scroll down half way through.

Currently own a Honda or recent grad or military? Take another $500 off (250 is funded by Honda and 250 by dealer, so a minimum of $250 should be taken off with no impact to dealer profit).

Want a 7yr 100k warranty? Don't buy it with your dealer. Many Honda dealers will happily sell it to you for $1300+tax (same Honda warranty).

You mean you can get up to 7500 if your tax bill is that high, if it is lower you get that amount only.

If you don't have a tax bill then you get nothing.

Anyone to agree?

Things like these aren't publicized. 6k from Honda is known. 7.5k tax rebate is on energy.gov. negotiation...depends on you
OP is a bit confusing. So I pay $19+$7.5K+Tax and then get $7.5K back fi I have paid more than $7.5K in fed tax, and my income is low enough to deduct?

He probably hasn't dealt with this non-refundable rebate before.
Its IRS form 8936

Have you ever installed solar out geothermal in your house? You get this rebate irrespective of your total income

If you're referring to the $7.5k federal tax credit, it very much does depend on your income because it is a non-refundable tax credit, not a rebate. So if your income is lower and you don't have $7,500 in Federal tax liability you will not get that full amount. Say your total federal tax liability was only $5k, then this credit would only be worth $5k to you.

A lot of folks get confused on the credit but it's pretty simple.

Over the course of a year you will owe X dollars in taxes, based on your income and deductions.

That X is your tax liability.

If X is $7500 or more you will get $7500 in tax credit from this. If X is less than $7500 you will get however much X is in credit.

That's it.


How much you get taken out of paychecks has nothing to do with this (this is just you pre-paying some or all or more than X during the year, it doesn't change the value of X itself.)

How much your "refund" or "how much you owe in January" normally is has nothing to do with this either and doesn't change X either.




As an example that confuses people- if you had $10,000 in tax liability (X) for the year, but your payroll deductions toward taxes had been $8,000, then normally you'd "owe" $2000... Some folks think "Oh, well, I only get 2k in credit.

Nope- the 2k isn't the # that matters- X is. Which is 10k.

So X now becomes $2500 instead of 10k, and since you already pre-paid 8k toward X, you've now overpaid X....so instead of "owing" 2k you now get a refund of $5500 (2500 minus 8k)



Again though, if X is less than 7500 before applying the credit you only get X as the credit. And it can't carry over to the next year either.

Also I think if you make too much you can in CA you either get the rebate or the HOV sticker. Someone correct me If I am wrong. It's like over $300,000 for joint.

They won't confirm, you just have to negotiate, let them know you know about the Honda credit. One way to verify is the terms of the lease advertising near your market will list the credit. Try finding a Costco dealer I think they have to disclose all incentives.

If you are struggling call any out of state dealer (preferably one with 5+ cars on the lot) they maybe happy to ship you one and eat the cost. Some people have had the touring as low as 29000 so there is still room for them to make money
