Here is the IRS page that covers this credit. The only date limit I could find was that the vehicle had to be put into service after 2009, but no end date, except when there are 200,000 vehicles sold by that manufacturer (which is less than the total count of all EVs sold in the US, ever). One possibility is that Fisker dropped the ball (shockingly) by failing to file the quarterly reports required. Otherwise, there does not seem to be a valid reason to deny the rebate.That doesn't make sense. Maybe there is a mixup on when you bought it versus the tax year you are filing in? Another possibility - are you the first owner??

Yeah, the whole thing seems odd. I'm not a tax attorney, but it doesn't seem logical that a taxpayer would be denied a legitimate tax credit due to the actions or inactions of a 3rd party. (FA in this case.) Anyway, whoever sent the denial letter was talking about a purchase date and not what the manufacturer did or did not report.One possibility is that Fisker dropped the ball (shockingly) by failing to file the quarterly reports required.
