Senate votes to give a tax break to new car buyers

WASHINGTON – The Senate voted Tuesday to give a tax break to new car buyers, setting aside bipartisan concerns over the size of an economic stimulus bill with a price tag approaching $900 billion. The vote was 71-26 to allow many car buyers to claim an income tax deduction for the cost of automobile sales taxes and interest payments on car loans.

The provision was attached to the economic stimulus bill at the heart of President Barack Obama's economic recovery plan and is subject to change or even elimination as the measure makes its way toward final passage.

It would apply to the first $49,500 in the price of a new car purchased between last Nov. 12 and Dec. 31, 2009. Individuals with incomes of up to $125,000 and couples earnings as much as $250,000 could qualify, including those who do not itemize their deductions.
Nice!

Is this something that would benifit us when we buy it, or do we have to wait until next tax time in 2010?

Since it says it allows a buyer to claim an income tax deduction, I assume that you wouldn't realize it until you file your taxes in 2010.

Dang I liked the original a lot better. With this version I would only get back $200 more then I would have the 1st year ($1,100 sales tax and $900 loan interest for a total of $2,000 and I fall in the 10% tax bracket) and only $90 more each year after that for the next 4 years assuming you can do this each year until the car is paid off.

Sounds like this is Barbara Mikulski's watered down plan. Not that much help, and I certainly hope it's not just for the year you buy the car, that would make it nearly as worthless as the rest of the Stimulus Bill.
