Turbo Tax still claims EV credit

Please note that “credit” only offset the tax owed, so it’s zero if you don’t owe any tax.
I was using step-by-step process, and the software asked if I bought an EV (which I filled out the information). It then claims the $7500 credit.
Regardless, there is no more tax credit for Tesla (for a while now), so the software is incorrect!

I remember TurboTax used to ask which brand of EV you bought (when I claimed the credit for a new Leaf bought in 2018). This year I didn't even try to go there, bought the Y in 2020.
