Treasury: Nearly 9,000 auto dealers have registered for electric vehicle tax credit

More than 1,000 additional auto dealers have registered for the point-of-sale electric vehicle tax credit since it became available Jan. 1, the Treasury Department confirmed Friday morning.

Treasury officials told reporters that as of Friday, more than 8,700 dealers had registered for the credit, up from the 7,400 announced in late December. Alterations to the credit under the Inflation Reduction Act allow electric vehicle buyers to claim it upon purchase from registered dealers rather than waiting until filing their taxes the following year.
