What EV tax credits and rebates are available in my state?

Getting an electric vehicle is an exciting prospect, but a high price tag can quickly put a damper on the idea. Luckily there are rebates, tax credits, and incentives abound to help accelerate the adoption of EVs across America. We’re going to help you find the latest in EV incentives so you can finally take the plunge.

Contents

Keep in mind that many of these are contingent on which EV you’re getting and often your income level, so be sure to read the fine print! For example, the big $7,500 federal rebate requires the car’s final assembly to take place in America. Many of the rebates available are for level-2 chargers installed at home. Others provide lower time-of-use electrical utility rates for charging your car during off-peak periods. The incentives here are geared towards individual EV owners, but there’s also loads of commercial-scale support for those looking to make big investments in EV infrastructure or heavy-duty vehicles.

CES 2020: Fisker talks EV availability, “there’s a lack of choice, quite frankly”
uber and evgo partnership to increase electric cars in ridesharing dc fast charger chevy bolt ev

There’s a chicken-or-egg question that has hung over mass electric vehicle adoption for nearly a decade: Which comes first, EVs in driveways or the charging infrastructure? Consumers are wary of buying an EV without knowing there are plenty of places to charge up, and utilities and private companies aren’t keen on installing public chargers if there aren’t enough electric vehicles to use them.

A panel of industry experts at CES 2020 took on this “painful ramp to electrification,” as Lea Malloy from Cox Automotive put it. She noted at the “Ready. Set. Charge!: An Electrified, Sustainable Tomorrow” panel that consumer’s hesitation boiled down to three things: the cost of the cars, their range, and the reliability of the battery.
More Affordable Options on the Way
Two of the panelists—Henrik Fisker of Fisker Inc. and Olivier Bellin of Canoo—have new all-electric vehicles at CES this year, and both companies are aiming at affordability. The Fisker Ocean can be leased or bought outright for $37,500; the Canoo is only available through a subscription. In either case, costs like maintenance are included in your monthly lease or subscription payment. Bellin sees the trend where “people move from usership to ownership” continuing.

Thousands of people lied to the IRS to get EV tax credits on gasoline cars
Red Chevrolet Bolt EV

Car buyers may have claimed more than $70 million in electric car tax credits using ineligible vehicles, Bloomberg reports, citing a report from a United States Treasury Department watchdog. The program awards a tax credit of up to $7,500 for the purchase of new electric cars and lower amounts for plug-in hybrids.

The questionable tax-credit claims were found in 16,510 tax returns from a five-year period through 2018, according to an audit from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). Returns from almost 240,000 taxpayers were reviewed as part of the audit, encompassing $1.4 billion in credits, according to Bloomberg. Exactly how taxpayers claimed credits for ineligible vehicles was redacted from the version of the audit obtained by Bloomberg, but the audit found that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) isn't equipped to identify false claims.

Best electric car charger deals: $100 off home charging stations
The handle of the Grizzl-E EV charger plugged into a vehicle.

While they may not dominate the market just yet, electric vehicles have become pretty massive in the past few years, with many people seeing them as the perfect alternative to traditional combustion engines. Of course, because EVs aren't as widespread, that means that there aren't always a ton of charging stations around, and sometimes those have inoperative or full chargers, leading to quite a few issues down the road. Luckily, you can get some excellent car chargers at home, which is why we've collected our favorite car charger deals for you below to save you trouble.
Seguma 16Amp Level 1/2 EV Charger -- $120, was $160

If you need a more basic charger, this Level one and two charger from Seguma is a solid option and can deliver 16 amps and 3.84kW, which is pretty substantial. It also comes with a NEMA 6-20 plug and a standardized J1772 connector, which should work on most EV vehicles out there except for Tesla, which has its own connector. There are also some intelligent charging features, which include things such as protection against things like under and over voltage, leakage, and lighting, and it has an automatic cut-off when your EV is fully charged.
