When is an 8936 form not required?

Form 8936 is specifically designed for individuals and businesses that have purchased a new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle and are claiming the credit for that purchase.

If you haven't purchased a qualifying vehicle, or if the vehicle you purchased is not a plug-in electric drive motor vehicle, you do not need to fill out Form 8936. Additionally, if you're leasing the vehicle rather than purchasing, the credit typically goes to the leasing company, not to you, so in this scenario, you would not need to complete Form 8936.

The deadline for Form 8936 is typically April 15th of the year following the tax year in which the qualified vehicle was placed in service.
