So here is a paste of the stimulus loophole that is all the rage, please do enjoy:
Golfers in the US are getting a steal thanks to the stimulus plan. Golf carts are getting massive discounts, up to half or two-thirds off, and some cheaper models can be completely free.
The intention of the stimulus package was to encourage consumers to buy high-mileage cars. Those who purchase electric vehicles can get $4,200 to $5,500 in federal tax credit. Golf cart, while not a practical mean of transportation, falls under this category, thus eligible for the tax credit from government. In some states, there are similar incentive programs, which provide additional subsidies. When an average golf cart costs about $8,000 to $10,000, it means golfers can get their carts for free, paid from tax money.
The stimulus crack emerged after IRS ruled that golf carts qualify for electric car tax credit as long as they are road worthy. They need to have safety features, like side and rear mirrors and 3-point seat belts.
