    Federal 2019 Tax Credit for Model 3

    amazing, 45 minutes on hold with turbo tax, your response helped me faster than they could I went through EVERY option before the "form" became available and they assured me it should just "pop up" when you press it. so today I didn't bother going through all the subheadings and just kept...

    Federal 2019 Tax Credit for Model 3

    turbo tax is pissing. me off. they said this would be updated today and it still does absolutely nothing when I click 8911

    Federal 2019 Tax Credit for Model 3

    I don't know how any of you claim you got to fill out 8911. I called turbo tax today and they said the form won't be available until Feb 20. I also let them know about the massive bug that does not automatically deduct 50% or 75% accordingly from 8936

    that was all internet tough talk. of course I manually lowered mine to 1875. hence why I said " I am ALMOST tempted..." ha

    Federal 2019 Tax Credit for Model 3

    now when I search 8911, it just brings me back to my tax breaks list and says "Got it. Let's get some more info about these additional tax breaks" nowhere does it reference form 8911 or a charging setup deduction of any kind. this is so unintuitive it is mind boggling when I did 8936, it...

    Federal 2019 Tax Credit for Model 3

    came here just to say this form became available, filled it out with the correct year and purchase date, it's crediting me the full $7500 I am almost tempted to file it and let them come back and tell me it's wrong.. I can't imagine how many people waited for this and are now filing incorrect...

    Federal 2019 Tax Credit for Model 3

    no, when I select form 8911 from the list, there are no fields at all that pop up, instead I get this seemingly unrelated screen about business credits -- and I've filed no sort of business claims with my return thus far... this credit for my HPWC and electrical expenses in addition to the...

    Federal 2019 Tax Credit for Model 3

    I just went through these instructions and for some reason after I pick form 8911 from the list, it takes me to another page that says: Business Credits Prepared Outside TurboTax These are forms you would have already prepared outside of TurboTax." it then lists more forms but does not...

    Supercharger - Howell/Freehold, NJ

    Most? there are a ton of wawas within a 10 minute radius of my house. I can think of at least 6 offhand. I highly doubt "most" would get superchargers. that kind of saturation would be insane for Tesla. In my town alone there are 2 wawas 3 minutes apart, and a third wawa another 2 minutes in...

    Store/Service/Delivery Center - Central Jersey - Lawrenceville NJ

    it's funny - I just went to make a mock appointment just to see the schedule on the app -- the earliest it allowed me to make one was JAN 29th, and the existing location at cherry hill had one several days sooner. this location is already getting more demand than cherry hill

    Who has ordered?

    I don’t tow anything - just hauling. And I don’t need that speed. I’m dangerous enough as it is in the dual motor Model 3. Any more power than that is just police attention for me that I don’t need. The way I look at it, if I just deny myself ever driving those higher end models, I won’t be...

    Will there be badging? (poll)

    At some point you need to associate your brand. I think it may not be an ostentatious large badge, but I expect the Tesla T to show up sir here on the body, even if it’s small and in one of the corners of the jumper or the side or something. Hard to think you’d spend all this money on a vehicle...

    Explain tri-motor to me

    A motor on each wheel in the back one motor for the front
  16. L

    Who has ordered?

    exactly my thought. I don't need the tri-motor performance or speed.i just need dual motor for the snow. would love to pay an upgrade fee for more mileage. especially because it would theoretically be more efficient without the third motor. but I can't justify 20k more for 200 more miles. it's...

    Forget the truck (please), can we talk about that trainwreck of a reveal?

    that still wouldn't explain why the 2nd. rear window would shatter. he only hit the sledgehammer on the driver's door I think Elon and company just play fast and loose with these presentations, don't rehearse or test much, and wing it a little at these presentation. I part of that is charming...

    Official Thread: Cybertruck (Cybrtrk) Event - Nov 21, 2019

    He was clearly pissed and shaken by the glass failure. It was visible. He didn’t even speak as the slides behind him kept changing. That was so uncomfortable to watch they didn’t really show the interior. The functionality. The ATV was weird - no explanation very odd. When I saw it was...

    Sorry but this is simply not true. I just waited a month and there were several people who ordered before me still waiting until December. the last few quarters, they basically have a drought month 1 and 2 as the backlog of orders builds. Local supply completely disappears. Then there is a...

    second for being interested in that. it’s so stupid. No car is that loud backing up slowly unless it’s some huge truck or something. Most little sedans are relatively quiet backing up and most of the noise you hear is the tire / pavement noise of the wheels turning and rubber friction on...

    you can see the styling on the invite pictures that people have turned up the contrast on. It matches that pitched/raked front fascia.

    Tesla Cybrtrk

    I would be more specific. Their engineering and technology is extraordinary. Their external styling is fairly conventional. I think that’s what makes Tesla’s palatable to many that would be harder to convert. The Bolts of the world look weird. The BMW I series cars look weird and are...

    Tesla Cybrtrk

    is there any indication or hints from Tesla executives that this is the play? I find it tough to believe that these very large legacy automakers with 3-4 brand badges under their respective companies are all going to shell out to the same third party for engines. I know that happens with...

    good point -- didn't realize it was regulation don't have to tell me twice to have animosity towards government it really is obnoxious. I drove a Lexus before, the engine is pretty damn quiet. when you're backing up at slow speed, the engine is by no means loud. the Tesla ends up being louder...

    Tesla Cybrtrk

    this is a good point. Say they made a Tesla-fied F150. It would probably send demand skyrocketing. They can barely churn out 100k Model 3’s per quarter. There is no way they’d maintain that, plus Model Y, plus Cybertruck. Maybe they truly aren’t even going for that market... which is an odd...

    I know many disagree but I have to go with the general consensus here- what makes this truck unique is that it’s an electric truck. The only so far of its kind. I think it’s a grand mistake to make an outlandish, sci-fi looking monstrosity. it doesn’t need to make itself even tougher to swallow...

    2 Questions: forcing Version 10? Sentry mode visualization on screen?

    thanks for that heads-up. I did get the update yesterday so I am up to speed. that tip makes sense -- you can do something similar. when you actually get the update. when the 2 minute warning comes up, you can tap the screen repeatedly on the count down clock and it will bring it instantly to...

    The thing is, it’s not JUST the updates. It’s their general attitude in aggregate. When you add it altogether, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth

    Need help clarifying the 7 day pick up window.

    it was for me. I was explicitly told the “policy changed” by 2 different people. And I was told at delivery if I didn’t get it by X day it would be cycled To someone else. That day was 3 days later

    2 Questions: forcing Version 10? Sentry mode visualization on screen?

    More elitist attitude. We get it. You’ve owned the car longer than I have so you’re better than me It doesn’t change the fact that they have the simple ability to do something to please a customer and choose to take the posture not to. Plus, you don’t know the problems I went through with...

    2 Questions: forcing Version 10? Sentry mode visualization on screen?

    the first center I referenced is where I took delivery That doesn’t negate my point. Everyone is saying it doesn’t happen. It’s impossible. Wait your turn. Shut up and be patient Of course that’s BS. They have to be able to push it if they want to especially if they are triaging issues during...

    would just like to say suck it to all the attitude-givers in this thread. I just proved all the anecdotal things I’d been hearing all along the chat confirmed I had no pending/hung updates. “Nothing they could do for me. It will happen when it happens” I call a service center that I have an...

    Someone suggested to me submitting a bug report over voice command. That that might trigger the system to think you just need the latest software. any clout to that?

    Need help clarifying the 7 day pick up window.

    the key phrase is “within the delivery window” If you’re away for a week and that’s the 3 day delivery window, you just lost your car it’s not that accommodating. Most people have work schedules and family obligations. The centers are typically far from your home. Getting a 3 day shot clock...

    Tesla gave my car away to someone else

    they refused to work on my trunk. They said it was “within spec” and said they could be off 3.5mm without needing to fix it. My only choice was to rejected the car. Then I noticed the frunk and the blemishes the next morning when I had daylight to work with. this is the part that gets me. The...

    Need help clarifying the 7 day pick up window.

    I’ll just tell you I was told the 7 day policy is now 3 days. When my favorite car came in I was given exactly 3 days to pick it up or I would lose it. They said the “policy changed”

    Tesla gave my car away to someone else

    do you mean you went to Tesla, and they APPROVED going to an official body shop to have covered work? Or you went to the body shop and they somehow got Tesla to pay for it?
