    Just bought a 2011 Prius and never thought to ask till now. Do they give a tax break when one buys a Prius? :)

    Not anymore. Some insurance companies offer a break on rates.

    You get a break on gasoline tax because you'll be buying less of it.

    Just my luck......almost exactly one year too late. I'll just have to content myself with getting about 3 times the mileage that I was getting with the gas hog I've been driving.

    For the Federal tax credit, you're more than 4 years too late. Toyota sells the most qualifying hybrids (clock started counting 1/1/06) and thus reached their phaseout period first. The phaseout period then cut the tax credit in by halves, over time and became after September 30, 2007.

    I got mine in January 06 and thus got the full $3150 tax credit.
