Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Tax Credit

Expired: 07/01/2015

An income tax credit is available to individuals who purchase or lease a new dedicated AFV or convert a vehicle to operate solely on an alternative fuel. The amount of the tax credit is 10% of the vehicle cost, up to $2,500. Qualified vehicles must meet emissions standards the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has defined. Eligible alternative fuels include natural gas, propane, hydrogen, coal-derived liquid fuels, fuels other than alcohol derived from biological materials, and electricity. Any portion of the credit not used in the year the AFV is purchased or converted may be carried over for up to five years. This incentive does not apply to hybrid electric vehicles. The tax credit expires July 1, 2015. For more information, see the DNR Alternative Fuels and Tax Credits website. (Reference House Bill 170, 2015, and Georgia Code 48-7-40.16)
