$7,500 Tax refund withheld

$7,500 Tax refund withheld

I have recently received my Income Tax refund from the IRS and is exactly $7,500 short of the total I should receive, so I can only imagine that is related to the tax credit for purchasing a Tesla being withheld for some reason. Did anybody experience a similar situation?
Thanks!

You should have received a letter from the IRS letting you know if they changed your taxes. I would call them. They are actually quite helpful. But did you put the current VIN number into the 8936 form?

"You should have received a letter from the IRS letting you know if they changed your taxes."

Correct. I recently received such a letter in response to my amended 2017 tax return (amended to claim the credit for installing EV charging equipment, which was uncertain when I originally filed my 2017 return).

The letter arrived a week after the check for the additional refund arrived.

Silly question. Did you include a properly completed Form 8936 with your return, or just put $7500 on Line 12 of your Form 1040 and not also include Schedule 3?
