Alternative Fuel and Fuel-Efficient Vehicle Title Tax Exemption

Qualified alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) and motor vehicles with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimated average city fuel economy of at least 40 miles per gallon are exempt from the excise tax imposed on an original certificate of title. The original purchaser and subsequent purchasers of the same vehicle are eligible for the excise tax exemption. The District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) determines which AFVs qualify. For more information, see the District of Columbia DMV website.
