The federal tax credit for home charging stations is a dollar-for-dollar reduction of up to $1,000 for the cost of purchasing and installing a home charging station. The credit is available for all-electric vehicles powered by either a plug-in hybrid or a pure electric powertrain. The credit is only available for purchases and installations made between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2022.
The tax credit covers the cost of the equipment used to install a home electric vehicle charging station, such as electric wiring, conduit, circuit breakers, and plugs. It also covers the cost of installation itself. To qualify for the federal tax credit, homeowners must have purchased and installed an approved electric vehicle charging station.
The federal tax credit is available to taxpayers who own and occupy a home in which an approved electric vehicle charging station was installed. Homeowners must also have purchased the charging station and its installation between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2022. The tax credit does not apply to leasing agreements or to charging stations that are part of an employer-provided benefit.
To claim the federal tax credit, taxpayers must fill out form 1040 and attach tax form 8990 to their tax return. Taxpayers should include their total cost of the electric vehicle charging station and its installation on form 8990. Any amount received as part of the tax credit must be included as additional income on line 8a of form 1040. The tax credit cannot exceed the amount of tax owed.
The federal tax credit for home charging stations is a great way for homeowners to offset the cost of electric vehicle charging station installation. By providing a dollar-for-dollar reduction of up to $1,000, the credit can significantly reduce the upfront cost of owning and operating an electric vehicle. With incentives like this in place, the shift to electric vehicles is becoming more and more appealing each day.
