The US federal EV charging tax credits for residential customers, which offers homeowners 30% of the cost of hardware and installation, lapsed at the end of 2021. We expect it to be reinstated in the near future. The tax credit is for the installation of charging infrastructure, and is capped at $1,000 for residential customers.
The federal EV tax credit for manufacturers offers a tax credit of up to $7,500, depending on battery size with a minimum of 7 kilowatt hours. Additional guidelines will be released early 2023. Previously owned electric vehicles (also known as “used vehicles”) are eligible for a tax credit of up to $4,000. All vehicles must be made by a qualified manufacturer.
