    I had submitted an amended tax form to utilize the $2500 tax credit for my 2013 PIP, bought last July. IRS has returned the Form 8936, asking for more info. They want a "Manufacturer's Certification that indicates the particular make, model and model year of the vehicle that qualifies as a plug-in electric motor vehicle, and that specifies the amount". Does anyone know where I can this certification?

    No. IRS has asked for the invoice separately. The certification is something that Toyota files with the IRS, from what I understand.

    Who's your dealer - Bernardi ? I'd give them a call, they should be able to produce everything you need

    That makes no sense. The government has this information - in fact they publish it. All you should need to provide is documentation of the VIN number and date of sale.

    There should be contact information on the letter they sent you. Try calling and finding a sentient being on the other end. :)

    According to this site: State & Federal Incentives | Plug In America
    Are they asking if toyota has sold more than 200,000 PiP's? Are they starting to phase out this tax credit?
