Can I get the tax credit by leasing a new clean vehicle?

If you lease a vehicle, the lessor (company that maintains the vehicle title) is the original user. This means that they will claim and receive the tax credit, but they can pass it along to the lessee (you, the customer) in your lease payments. When negotiating your lease terms, simply ask if they are willing to lower your deposit or monthly payments in an amount equal to the tax credit. The lessors receive the tax credit through the Commercial Clean Vehicle Tax Credit.
