As I understand it, if you buy a new Tesla, you qualify for the federal tax credit, which as of last June would have been $3750. But since I leased my Model 3, it was my understanding that Tesla got the credit, and was then supposed to deduct it from the price of the car, giving me a somewhat lower lease payment. Now that it's tax season, I just began looking for evidence that I got some of that $3750 benefit, but I can't find any sign of it in my lease contract. Has any other leaser run into this? Were you expecting some benefit from the federal tax credit? Did you get it? Or does Tesla not pass this on?
