Abstract: Notice 2009-54 sets forth interim guidance, pending the issuance of regulations, relating to the qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle credit under Sec. 30D of the Internal Revenue Code, as in effect for vehicles acquired after December 31,2009.

The credit attributable to depreciable property (vehicles used for business or investment purposes) is treated as a general business credit. Any credit not attributable to depreciable property is treated as a personal credit.

Current Actions: There are changes being made to the burden associated with the collection.

Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Affected Public: Individual, Businesses, and other for-profit organizations.

Generally, tax returns and tax return information are confidential, as required by 26 U.S.C. 6103.

Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record.
