How to claim your federal tax credit for home charging

You might have heard that the federal tax credit for EV charging was reintroduced recently. Here's how to claim your credit for 30% of the cost of your Level 2 AC (240-volt) home charger and installation, up to $1,000.

We think ChargePoint Home Flex is a great choice because it charges up to nine times faster than a wall outlet (adding up to 37 miles of range per hour) and is future-ready for your next car and home. It's also ENERGY STAR certified for efficiency and UL Listed for safety. 

Install the station

Request a quote from our network of trusted installers or find an electrician on your own. Another advantage of ChargePoint Home Flex is that the amperage can be adjusted to match your home's electrical supply, which may keep your installation costs down.

Save your receipts

Make sure to save your receipt when you purchase the station and get an invoice from your electrician for the installation.

Do the math

Complete your full tax return, then fill in form 8911. You'll need to know your tax liability to calculate the credit. We're EV charging pros, not CPAs, so we recommend getting advice from a tax professional.  

Tip: Keep in mind that you need to have a tax liability (in other words, you need to owe taxes) in order to claim a tax credit. If you are expecting a refund, the refund will not increase due to this credit.
