Okie is almost certainly correct, I can’t imagine you not having a good bit more than $500 tax liability unless you have a large family or some other very large tax credit.I've already answered this. I either have a relatively small amount of tax or I get a refund. Prior to Covid I took the Student Loan Interest Deduction that would net me about a $500 tax return. I make ~$85 k and rent so not in a tax bracket where I owe all that much. The credit is non-refundable and can only be used once in the year the car is purchased. I would net maybe $500 or so, that's it. My savings in taxes owed is not the difference between a new and used Bolt.
What you’re concerned with is your “Total Tax”, not whether you get a refund or not. On the 2022 1040, this would be the value on line 24.
