Sorry for the lame duck blogging lately. I’m working on some stuff now but I promise I’ll get back to regular posting soon. Here’s a lazy cut-n-paste of something that came in my inbox earlier.

Tell Congress — Don’t let the EV infrastructure tax credit expire!

Last year, Plug In America, along with plug-in vehicle and EV infrastructure manufacturers from coast to coast worked with members of the House and Senate to get a critical plug-in vehicle infrastructure tax credit into the stimulus bill. These EV tax credits of 50% up to $2,000 for individuals, and 50% up to $50,000 for businesses have led to the beginning of early deployment of EV charging infrastructure all across the United States.

But the infrastructure tax credit is set to expire on 12/31/2010 unless we act now!

Just as plug-in cars are about to get on the road is absolutely the wrong time to end these tax credits.

We were initially successful in advocating an extension in the proposed 2010 tax extenders legislation. But now our efforts are threatened – we hear that the tax credit extension for EV infrastructure may be scaled back or eliminated from the tax extenders bill. This credit should be extended at the same level as in the stimulus for at least another three years.

    There are also special tax deductions for “Green” Commercial Buildings. To be specific, it’s called the EPAct 179D Energy Tax Deduction.
