    Can you call me or email me I just purchased a prime advanced in Pittsburgh PA and I'm trying to figure out what rebate forms I need to fill out on the rebate side not tax credit side.

    Sorry, can't help you out since my state's rebate is different from yours.

    I do know this for a fact: In California, you can get a rebate of $1500 or $3500, depending on your income. If your income is low enough, you get $3500. I asked a rep at CARB (that processes these refunds) what happens if you have two people on the title to your Prime. Does the income get added together? They said it does not. So then I asked what if one person on the title has an income is too high for the $3500, but the other person on the title has low income low enough to qualify for the $3500. They said that the lower income person should apply for the $3500, and that there is no problem in doing this. They said it is fully allowed.

    I just got a response from CVRP and they said that the program is still active and they have funds. But the rebate check can take up to 6 months to receive it.

    You need to go to:
    dep.pa.gov
    The electronic application is on there. There are also phone numbers for help. It took me a little while to figure it out but it is worth it! They did extend it (August 30th) so there must still be money left. Good luck and congrats on your new Prime!

    Colorado give you a $5,000 credit that you can take off the price of the vehicle. Pretty cool. Add that to the $4,502 from the Feds, add a Costco discount of $1,038 and you have a great deal

    Cool. Got my confirmation letter and waiting for my check. Don't forget you have to record it as income when doing taxes next year. :(

    Wondering if this applies if you’re married (only ONE name is on title)


    I’m wondering ..If my income is low enough for the $3500 (It is) how does what the CARB employee work if you have to supply a 4506-T
    that would show combined income of both spouses. (Spouse’s income being higher)

    Or did the CARB employee mean 2 people on title that ARENT married

    After rereading the guidelines, I’m pretty sure I only qualify for the 1500

    What I did find out was a gentleman at the dealership told me that I couldn’t apply for the tax credits UNTIL I received my registration in the mail, but in the guidelines I just read: the temporary registration will suffice.

    So I’m going to apply online now
