If you buy the new all electric Chevy Volt you qualify for a federal tax credit of $7,500, but you might not get it. A reporter working back east says it appears some dealerships are swiping the credit before consumers can their hands on it.
How? Dealerships are selling the cars to each other, getting the $7,500 and then placing the car up for sale as used. It appears to be completely legal, but executives at General Motors might not be amused, so if you are buying a Volt and not getting the tax rebate, consider placing a call to General Motors.
