Just to post some up to date information, the federal tax credit was renewed and is retroactive to 2015.
When you file your taxes, fill out Form 8911.
Hey thanks Lance! Timely info considering I'm just working on my taxes.
So it looks like if one spent money on a EVSE and or installation costs to hook up the EVSE, you can deduct 30% of the costs. I'm assuming the 30% is deducted from your gross income so it's really 30%(or whatever tax bracket your in) of the 30% of your EVSE and install. For example if your EVSE and installation came to $1000 you'd be able to deduct $300 off your gross income which in my example would save you $90......a far cry from your $1000 install cost but still better than nothing. Note this is compared to the $7500 federal tax credit that some of you may have got if you purchased your Leaf. In that case assuming you paid over $7500 in taxes, you actually got back $7500 back from the IRS, thats nice
