I'm hoping to get some first-hand input on the federal home EV charger tax credit, which allows homeowners to claim 30% of the cost of EV chargers up to a total $1000 credit (ie, a 30% credit on up to $3333 in costs). The DOE site simply refers to deducting the cost of "property" used for EV charging. The consumer-facing sites interpreting the law all say that installation costs are similarly subject to the credit. In my case, I have a very crowded 100-amp service box, and it seems likely I'll need to upgrade to 200+ amp service. Has anyone tried taking the credit for that cost? I wouldn't be upgrading the panel except for the EV charger, so I think it's plausibly an installation cost, but I suppose I might realize some other benefits from the upgraded panel down the road (even if it's just incidentally-increased home value).
