- An Act promoting the use of electric
Documents & Status:
of S 1490 | Status
of the bill
S 1490 exempts the sale of battery electric vehicles
rom the state’s sales tax. Intended to be revenue neutral, to the extent possible, it requires the Department of Revenue to develop a method for assessing the miles traveled. These vehicles have developed over time to be both environmentally friendly and energy efficient, while not sacrificing performance or practical use. Now seen in sedans, SUVs, and lightweight trucks, the Commonwealth has an interest in promoting their expanded use on our roadways.
