Did you purchase an Electric Vehicle charging station in 2012 or 2013?   The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 restored the 30% federal tax credit for electric vehicle charging station equipment and installation.   Happily, the extension applies retroactively to cover all alternative fuel infrastructure put into service in 2012, including installation of fueling equipment for plug-in electric vehicles.  Ask your tax expert for Form 8911, for the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit.   The tax credit is subject to a $1,000 dollar cap on personal-use installations, and expires on December 31, 2013, so if you are contemplating purchasing and installing a charging station, do it now!
