Effective July 15, 2015, the sales tax exemption for alternative fuel vehicles is extended to July 1, 2019. This exemption had been set to expire this year. The exemption applies to cars, light duty trucks, and medium duty passenger vehicles that are exclusively powered by clean alternative fuel and hybrids that can travel at least 30 miles using only battery power. Clean alternative fuel means electricity, natural gas, propane, or hydrogen.

This exemption does not apply to sales of new vehicles with a selling price of more than $35,000 (including any trade-in value) or to sales of used vehicles.

Additionally, the exemption does not apply to leases that are signed after July 15, 2015 when the fair market value of the leased vehicle is more than $35,000 at the beginning of the lease. For leases signed before July 15, 2015, the lease is exempt regardless of the fair market value of the qualifying vehicle at the beginning of the lease.
