    Toyota Hybrid New Tax Credit Amounts

    If you have been considering purchasing a Toyota Hybrid car, you will get less of a tax break beginning October 1, 2006. Toyota is the first car manufacturer to reach the 60,000-vehicle hybrid limit which they did during the calendar quarter ending June 30, 2006. The tax law states that the credit for buying a hybrid vehicle will begin to phase out during the second calendar quarter after the quarter in which the company sells its 60,000th hybrid or lean burn technology vehicle. That is October 1 for Toyota.

    Toyota hybrid vehicles purchased before Oct. 1, 2006 will still qualify for the full tax credit credit. For Toyota hybrid vehicles bought on or after October 1, 2006, and on or before March 31, 2007, will receive 50% of the otherwise allowable credit amount. Taxpayers buying vehicles on or after April 1, 2007, and on or before September 30, 2007, will receive 25% of the credit.

    Here are the new credit amounts for Oct. 1, 2006 March 31, 2007:

    <li> 2005 Prius $1,575
    <li> 2006 Prius $1,575
    <li> 2006 Highlander 4WD Hybrid $1,300

    <li> 2007 Camry Hybrid $1,300
    <li> 2007 Lexus GS 450h $775

    Here are the credit amounts for April 1, 2007 September 30, 2007:
