If you can provide a link or links to official info on your state's likely exemption from sales tax of Bolt EV please add it to this thread.

Mods: this could be made a sticky for the convenience of prospective buyers.

I will start with my state, NJ, which exempts both sale and lease of certain categories of ZEVs from the state's 7% sales tax.

The list of 2017 MY exempt vehicles as of September 8, 2016 is here
http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/pdf/Treasury2017ModelYearZEVlisting.pdf

My reading of the current list suggests that once the Bolt EV arrives in NJ it will be listed as a Type III ZEV defined as follows, "Type III ZEV has a range of equal to or greater than 100 miles, must be capable of replacing 95% maximum rated energy capacity in <= 10 minutes, or range of equal to or greater than 200 miles with no fast refueling requirements."

As an aside, the required charging intervals for some of NJ's ZEV categories are quite stringent and probably cannot be met by most current and proposed BEVs. Not sure who might have lobbied for those recharge requirements, but NJ is one of the few states (I believe there are only two) that prohibits drivers from putting gas into their car's gas tank. That prohibition is represented as a safety-driven law that coincidentally both creates quite a few low paying jobs and increases the price of gas at the pump.

The poster I assume will welcome links on states with rebates, and tax credits for EVs, as many states have either, or, as I personally do not know any with rebates, credits and sales tax exemptions. here is a state by state info on EV cars with it defaulting to my adopted state. just click on your state to get the information on inspections, credits; etc.

jsmay311, Mcgsp,

Excellent. Looks like I was attempting to reinvent the wheel. The links you posted provide comprehensive info that will likely be kept up do date. Thank you both!

While not a state (yet), the Bolt (and the Volt) should be exempt from DC Excise Tax. The District of Columbia exempts all vehicles with rated by the EPA as 40 mpg, or higher. This applies both on new and used car purchases. DC residents buying a new qualifying hybrid or clean fuel vehicle also get a reduced registration fee for the first two years.

Looks like the list is updated to reflect the Bolt now. It's listed as type II.

Interesting. I wonder why it doesn't meet the requirements of the Type III. By what you posted it definitely meets the requirement. Maybe the answer is "It's not a Tesla."
