Changes made by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 ( P.L. 117-169) are reflected in draft forms and instructions for:

  • Form 8908, Energy Efficient Home Credit, and
  • Form 8911, Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit

Energy Efficient Home Credit

The Inflation Reduction Act extends the Code Sec. 45L energy efficient home credit to cover qualified new energy efficient homes sold or leased after 2021 and before 2033. The Act also increases and modifies the credit for homes sold after 2022.

The draft Form 8908 and the draft instructions reflect both the 2022 version of the credit and the post-2022 version. The IRS intends that contractors use the revised form and instructions for tax years beginning in 2022 or later. For tax years beginning before 2022, contractors should use the appropriate prior revision of the form.

Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit

The Inflation Reduction Act extends the Code Sec. 30C alternative fuel vehicle refueling property credit to cover refueling property placed in service after 2021 and before 2033. The Act also modifies the credit for certain refueling property placed in service after 2022.

The draft Form 8911 and the draft instructions reflect both the 2022 version of the credit and the post-2022 version. The draft form divides Lines 4 and 5 to break out amounts subject to the lower credit rate for refueling property placed in service after 2022 that does not meet new prevailing wage and apprenticeship requirements.

The IRS intends that taxpayers use the revised form and instructions for tax years beginning in 2022 or later. For tax years beginning before 2022, the taxpayers should use the appropriate prior revision of the form.
