Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Tax Credit for businesses
If you purchase and install a ChargePoint®️ electric vehicle (EV) charging solution between Jan. 1, 2023, and Dec. 31, 2032, your business may be eligible to receive a 30% tax credit up to $100,000 under the 30C Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Tax Credit. Commonly referred to as the "federal tax credit", the credit now requires applicants to be located in designated census tracts (guidance and maps forthcoming from the IRS) and follow prevailing wage standards.
The tax credit applies to out-of-pocket costs for infrastructure (think EV charging stations), make ready and installation (which can often exceed hardware costs), but doesn’t apply to expenses such as permitting and inspection fees, networking costs or ChargePoint® Assure™. The good news is that businesses that install stations at multiple sites may apply the credit to each location.
Can I combine the tax credit with other incentives?
The short answer is yes. You can use the 30C tax credit after receiving other EV charging grants or rebates. However, the tax credit only applies towards qualifying out of pocket costs you ended up paying for, meaning the 30% credit won't apply to the portion of your expenses that could be eliminated by other grants and incentives.
