    It says: "EV buyers can claim a credit of 30 percent of the purchase and costs of the charging equipment, up to $1,000 for individuals and $30,000 for businesses. Those rules, which were scheduled to end on December 31, 2011, were extended through 2013."

    Has anyone taken advantage of that tax credit? If so, do you recall where in your tax forms you entered information to get the credit? I am a bit surprised that Tesla never mentioned it to me when I ordered and received my HPWC a few months ago.

    I've searched but cannot find a link to the federal government form that would be used to apply for that credit. There are plenty of stories about the credit expiring today, but none with links to any government web page. I assume there is not a specific form.

    Thanks.

    Since it is effected by AMT, many people don't actually qualify for this credit.
