How do I claim the credit for purchasing an electric car

To enter information on your energy-efficient vehicle, follow these steps:

In TurboTax, open your tax return:

  1. Click on Federal in the left-hand column, then on Deductions & Credits on top of the screen.
  2. Scroll down to locate the section Cars and Other Things you own and click on Show more .
  3. Click Start next to Energy-Efficient Vehicles.

Or use the Search box (magnifying glass) at the top right of the TurboTax screen and enter "electric vehicle credit." Hit enter, then click on the "jump to" link to go directly to this topic.
