If that’s the case, we’ve got some excellent news for you! There are EV charging incentives, Rebates, and Tax Credits when you purchase and install an EV charging station.

In over 40 states, there are regional incentives and tax credits for acquiring and installing business and household EV charging stations. Go electric! The right time is now.

A retroactive, federal tax credit for the purchase of environmentally friendly transportation, including EV charging stations, has been enacted by Congress. After December 31, 2021, the tax credit will be phased out.

If you want to take advantage of this credit on your federal return make your purchase and install before the end of 2021!

You can get a 30% federal tax credit if you buy and install an electric car charging station for as little as a thousand dollars for a home unit, ranging up to thirty thousand dollars for a commercial system.

This federal tax credit initially expired on December 31, 2017. However, it has been extended through December 31, 2021.

To qualify, your charging station must be bought and set up by the end of 2021. Give us a call at 443-600-9300 if you’re interested in taking advantage of the tax credit. We can show you how.

Did You Have a Charging Station Installed in 2017 or 2018?

You still qualify for the tax credit, so don’t panic! The tax credit is retroactive, back to 2017 installs, and doesn’t expire until the end of 2021.

If your installation took place before 2019, you would need to modify your return to receive your credit.

Other EV Charging incentives for businesses are available.

If you’ve lost your receipt but bought your charging station from Wired Up Electric LLC, shoot us an email or contact us at 443-600-9300, and we’ll give you a copy of your invoice.

The federal tax credit is available for all charging stations installed by Wired Up Electric. We want all of our eligible customers to receive this tax break!

All details can be found on the US Department of Energy’s website.
