Sending to my tax guy. Thanks for pointing this out.The IRS should now properly give you the credit for purchases with a binding contract dated before 8/16/23, so if you're appealing, keep pushing.
I say this because it appears Rivian has now informed the IRS that the 2023 models purchased prior to 8/16/22 are eligible for credit.
This is based on 2023 having been recently added to this list on the IRS website https://www.irs.gov/credits-deducti...d-clean-vehicles-purchased-in-2022-and-before
A big THANK YOU to Rivian's finance people! And to fellow forum members to identifying this problem.
