Has anyone submitted their 2022 federal tax forms yet and claimed the 30% credit using the cost of the Qmerit Level 2 charging outlet ?
I purchased a Juicebox EVSE and am definitely going to claim it as it was $550. I had read that someone had discussed the Qmerit installation eligibilty with a CPA and had been advised that since the level 2 was included in the price paid for the Bolt the cost would be eligible to include on form 8911.
thoughts/ considerations?

I'm not a tax expert and this is not tax advice, but my thoughts are that any amount you had to pay out of pocket (not reimbursed by GM/Qmerit) would be eligible for the credit.
Again, just my opinion, but if the cost of the installation was included in the cost of the car, then it would fall under the $7500 tax credit for an EV, which the Bolt was not eligible for in 2022.

You can only claim a credit if you paid for the install and/or equipment, and have receipts for those expenses.

It is not a guranatee 30%. There are other credits in the tax code that , combined, will reduce this 30%. I think I got aroud $250 credit on a $1600 cost for the equipment and installation. Don't ask me what exactly knocked it down as I can't remember.

But if he鈥檚 filing for 2022 that means he didn鈥檛 qualify for the EV tax credit.

There鈥檚 nothing wrong with folks pursuing their own paths and take on risks we wish to take. We鈥檙e all adults and can help one another with the information and experiences we鈥檝e gathered from Qmerit and our electricians.

We technically paid for the "complementary EV charger installation" when we purchased our vehicles. I see no problem with using the electrician's estimated quote to claim the 30% EV charger rebate via IRS tax form 8911. 30% off nearly $1000 with a <1% audit risk that could result in repaying the 30% + another 25% in penalties and interest are better odds than most gambles nowadays...
