Get a tax credit on your EV charging equipment
The Federal Government provides a tax credit of 30% on infrastructure for charging an EV up to $1,000. My wife and I were able to get the maximum of $1,000 credit on our tax obligations from our $3,200 solar EV charging station. That is real money! We used the 2017 Turbotax software to e-file, and we did not itemize deductions. We did not file for the Louisiana State tax credit as there were changes to the state's rules during mid-2017 and the IRS has not finalized how they will deal with the changes yet.
