The new tax credit for Tesla vehicles comes from the Inflation Reduction Act, which went into effect earlier this year and includes benefits for customers looking to buy EVs. With its inclusion on the list, Tesla is set to benefit from customers buying its EVs and getting a tax break for their purchases.
