Thanks u/djacrylick for the heads-up!

If you use HR Block for tax returns, you need to enter the full $7,500 under the tax credit (not the actual amount of $3,750/$1,875) because the percentage is automatically deducted from your return.

TurboTax doesn’t have energy credits working yet, usually, they release them a bit later in the year (February or so).

You can claim 30% (or $1,000) of the cost of an EV Charger installed in 2018/19/20

It’s tax season and this is a reminder that you can make a credit of 30% or $1,000 (whichever is less) for the equipment and installation cost of an EV charger in your home (to include panel upgrades etc). This new law can be applied retroactively for equipment put in place after Dec 2017 but can only be claimed in the year the equipment was put in service so anything made in 2018 would require an amended tax return (form 1040x). Consult your tax advisor for more information.
