However, claiming this credit can be a confusing process.
In this blog post, we will discuss the process of claiming the home electric-car charging station tax credit in simple terms, along with some key takeaways about the credit.
The Home Electric-Car Charging Station Tax Credit is a tax credit offered by the federal government to individuals who install electric-car charging stations at their residence. The credit is worth up to $1,000 or 30% of the cost of the charging station installation, whichever is less.
This credit is part of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act, also known as the PATH Act. The PATH Act is aimed at encouraging American families and businesses to invest in energy-efficient technology, such as electric cars and charging stations.
Here are the key steps to follow to claim the home electric-car charging station tax credit:
It’s important to note that you must own the charging station in order to receive the credit. If you lease the charging station, you are not eligible for the credit.
