100K BMW ActiveHybrid 7 qualifies for laughably small $900 credit

If you’ve got $103,125 to dish out for a brand-spankin new 2011 BMW ActiveHybrid 7. then chances are quite high that you don’t really care about getting $900 back on your purchase. Just in case you do, though, you should know that BMW’s flagship sedan has been approved for a $900 federal income tax credit under an incentive program for efficient hybrid vehicles.

The people who can afford a $100K car are VERY unlikely to be able to qualify to take the $900 credit due to their personal income levels and the Alternative Minimum Tax.

Even if they aren’t hit by the AMT, they are paying 35% tax, so I really don’t care if a person making $100K a year ends up paying $34,100 in taxes instead of $35,000. Big woo.

The real shame is that 45% of Americans pay no income taxes at all. Everyone should pay some part, even if it is very small.

18% improvement is significant in the fuel it saves. It is more significant that a Prius going from 50mpg to 58mpg.

Also thank rich people for buying hybrids that have lithium ion batteries in them. They are so expensive now that only a few can afford them, but when rich people are early adopters it make the technology possible. Only after a technology becomes possible, does it become practical. Is Toyota, Honda or Ford offering lithium ion batteries?

Are average Americans buying them? No? That’s what I thought.

Income tax is only one of the taxes people get hit with. The majority of people pay more in Payroll tax than Income tax, and people making less than $100,000 pay the vast majority of payroll taxes. Payroll taxes make up over 36% of federal revenue, compared to 45% for individual income taxes.

To imply that they do not pay taxes by stating they pay no income taxes at all is misleading.

ine937 beat me to the punch on that one. And when you are a single mom making a very low salary, and they take out payroll taxes and you’re still left paying taxes on everything else (even sales tax) it’s a very large percentage of your overall money to spend.

I’m more concerned with why Exxon paid no US income tax last year. How does a US corporation, that makes the lion’s share of it’s revenue in the US, not pay a single penny in US income tax. How can a Texas based company make $442.85 BILLION and not pay taxes in the US?

AND get subsidies and favorable loans?

Yes, I’m off subject here, but you brought up taxes and fairness. -)
