Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Manufacturer Tax Credit

Expired: 12/31/2016

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) may award tax credits under the Hoosier AFV Manufacturer Tax Credit to foster job creation, reduce dependence on imported energy sources, and reduce air pollution resulting from the manufacture or assembly of light-duty AFVs in Indiana. AFV manufacturers are eligible for tax credits of up to 15% of qualified investments, which include expenditures in the state that are reasonable and necessary for the manufacture or assembly of AFVs. To be eligible, the manufacturer must compensate its employees at least 150% of the state's hourly minimum wage and agree to maintain operations for at least 10 years. Additional restrictions apply. For the purpose of this incentive, AFVs are defined as vehicles designed to operate on E85, biodiesel, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (propane), hydrogen, methanol, coal-derived liquid fuels, non-alcohol fuels derived from biological material, P-Series fuels, or electricity. IEDC must review and approved applications for this incentive. The credit applies to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2006, and before December 31, 2016. Unused credits may be carried forward for up to nine consecutive taxable years. Reference Indiana Code 6-3.1-31.9)
