Hybrid Vehicle Tax Repeal Effective July 1, 2014

The General Assembly signed into law legislation effective July 1, 2014, that repeals the $64 annual hybrid vehicle tax. The repeal also provides for a refund of taxes paid on registration periods that begin July 1, 2014 and after.

The hybrid taxes are still required to be paid on all registration periods that are due prior to July 1, 2014.

  • Owners of hybrid vehicles with registrations expiring June 30, 2014 or before are required to pay the $64 hybrid tax.
  • The $64 hybrid tax is still required to be paid on hybrid vehicles purchased between now and June 30, 2014.

Refund checks for hybrid vehicle taxes paid on registration periods that begin July 1, 2014, or after will be issued beginning July 1, 2014. The law does not provide for a refund of any taxes paid for registration periods that begin before July 1, 2014.
