2024 Electric Vehicle Tax Credits in North Carolina

Close up of a charging electric car

Are you considering buying an electric vehicle in 2024? In a move designed to lower consumer costs and help car dealers increase sales, the government is expanding access to credits under the Inflation Reduction Act for new and previously owned EVs. North Carolina residents who purchase an EV will now see their credit at the point of sale, something research shows is widely preferred. They could also qualify for state-based rebates on EV chargers for their homes.

Blanton’s Air, Plumbing & Electric offers comprehensive EV charger installation services to Raleigh, Durham, and Fayetteville homeowners, including obtaining permits and approvals from local authorities.

If you’re interested in installing an electric vehicle charging station at your Triangle-area home, contact Blanton’s today at (910) 822-2866 in Fayetteville or (919) 298-2105 in the Triangle.

EV Rebate Program: Explained

Wouldn’t saving thousands of dollars on your next EV purchase be nice? Good news! The 2024 electric vehicle tax credit helps you do just that.

The tax credit brings welcome relief to EV buyers, including those who invest in fuel-cell electric vehicles. The latest changes to the credit include:

  • A minimum battery capacity requirement.
  • Inclusion of EVs and FCEVs.
  • Elimination of manufacturer sales caps.

To qualify for the federal tax credit, EVs must meet specific criteria, including:

  • Income thresholds
  • Vehicle age
  • Price limits

For instance, the EV manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) cannot exceed specific amounts, used EV models must be at least 2 years old, and the vehicle must weigh less than 14,000 pounds. The EV must also satisfy battery and critical mineral requirements.

North Carolina EV Charger Rebates

The federal tax credit amount is $7,500; however, that figure drops to $3,750 if the EV you purchase only meets the battery requirements. To check your vehicle’s eligibility, head to the Department of Energy’s website to see if it meets all the requirements.

One significant change to the tax credit begins on January 1, 2024. Instead of waiting to claim the credit on their federal taxes, consumers can transfer it to the car dealer, immediately reducing the vehicle’s purchase price at the point of sale. You must still fulfill all the eligibility requirements.

Beyond the federal EV tax credit, North Carolina offers additional incentives to help you save, including rebates on EV charging station installation. Duke Energy provides residential customers a $1,133 rebate for electrical upgrades to support Level 2 or direct current fast charging (DCFC) stations. The state’s Department of Environmental Quality also has a grant program that provides funding for purchasing and installing private Level 2 EV charging stations.

Note: The dealer you buy your EV from must be registered with the IRS’ Energy Credits Online before you claim or transfer your tax credit. Be sure to confirm the dealer’s participation before making the purchase.
