Still doesn't say whether the rebate is taken off the taxable purchase price of the car or after taxes have been applied. My guess after all applicable taxes have been applied. Either way New Yorkers will get a nice rebate. Nice that you won't need to wait for check to be cut by the state. Here in NJ there is no sales tax but only ZEVs qualify, cars like the Volt or any PHEV do not get the tax exemption.
Interesting if you look at the link on how it works, Tesla owners will only get a $500.00 rebate, Volt 2016 and up $1,700 and of course the Bolt is the only qualified vehicle that will get the full $2,000.00
