Qualified PEVs 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 PEVs qualify. For more information, see the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles website.
