Just got a check in the mail from the PA treasury. I bought a used 2015 Volt back in June. I didn't think I'd qualify for any tax credits or rebates since it was used. However, while perusing the internet I found out that PA is still offering rebates for purchases of used EVs so long as they meet certain criteria. I also received $50 from PECO for buying an EV. How awesome is that?!

Can you provide a link? How much was your rebate? What are the basic requirements?

Sorry. It was for $1000. It's a grant from PA DEP. I can't post links as I don't have enough posts. It should come up if you do a Google search for ALTERNATIVE FUELS INCENTIVE GRANT PROGRAM: ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE (AFV) REBATES

The program changed at the end of August - rebates are based on battery capacity. The amount for used vehicles has decreased.
$750 now for used if less than 75k miles AND purchased from a dealer. An additional $500 if you're below 200% of the poverty income. Private party sales do not qualify. $1000 for new purchases.

I think the rebate is taxable income for both federal and state, which is odd because rebates usually aren't.

You'll get a 1099 from PA so you pay Federal tax. I got 1K last year. They don't make it simple to apply for this. The website was down for some time, so they said I had to file on paper (much paperwork, copies and about 2 bucks to mail). Then the website came back and they refused to accept the paper, so had to file online (only in PA, what a state). They only grant like 250 of these for the whole state, but I have noticed they don't even give out that many, typically. I think the enormous hassle keeps most from going through the effort.

Odd, I actually thought it was very simple when I did mine a year ago..
