State May Also Impose a Fee on Alternative Fuel Vehicles

The Georgia legislature has approved a bill that would eliminate the state’s $5,000 tax credit on alterative vehicles. The legislation would impose road use fees of $200 on consumers and $300 on business for alterative fuel vehicles operated in the state (up from $70 today), the Atlanta Electric Vehicle Development Coalition reports.

A bill eliminating a $5,000 state tax credit for electric vehicles and imposing an annual fee of $300 on commercial alternative fuel vehicles ($200 for consumers) has been passed by the Georgia legislature and awaits the attention of Gov. Nathan Deal.

“Efforts to advance a compromise-reduced EV tax credit, with phase-out and annual budget caps,” AEVDC says, “failed to find any support in the Georgia Assembly… despite hundreds of calls, emails, signed petitions and personal visits to legislators, and manufacturer ride-and-drive events.”

On the brighter side, a separate bill would allow unrestricted direct sales of Tesla EVs in Georgia, though a maximum of five stores.
