HB 301 Transportation Tax Amendments

LINK

3rd. Sub.

This bill increases vehicle registration fees by $7, reduces the rate of motor fuel tax from 16.5% to 14.2%, and imposes a 12.5% tax on the sale of electricity for electric vehicle charging at certain public charging stations per kilowatt hour or per hour, and deposits a portion of the tax into the transportation fund. The owner/operator of the charging station would be allowed to keep 6% of the tax for admin fees and the remaining would be deposited into the transportation fund. This 3rd sub introduces a potential charging subscription in lieu of the charging tax: a service for which a person pays a charging station operator a subscription fee for a reduced charging rate or unlimited charging during the subscription period. If passed this would take effect 1/1/2024.
