    Obviously it's tax-return time, so I wanted to make sure I'm getting all the benefits I can...I think, as a Model S purchasing in 2013, I can claim:

    - The $7500 EV tax credit
    - The Sales tax paid on the car
    - Any costs related to the installation of my charger

    Am I missing anything?

    There is one, but TADA made sure the wording says you get it ONLY if the car was purchased at a Texas dealership. It would have been $2500, too.

    Your local utility may offer something. In Austin, AE offers to cover up to 50% of the charger install up to $1500 total.

    Yeah. It's OK if money leaves the country to go back to Germany, but if you want to buy an America BEV, Texas isn't interested in helping you.

    Oh come on! That franchised dealership markup helps pay for local little league uniforms and Easter Seals! :p
