Electric vehicle tax credits and rebates available in the US, sorted by state

With more mainstream curiosity surrounding EVs, bolstered by a ten year extension in federal tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act, there’s never been a more exciting time to buy an EV, and there has never been a wider selection of options to choose from. What many US consumers may not be aware of, however, is what electric vehicle tax credits may be available to them at the state level in addition to discounts or money back on EV charger installations. Luckily for you, we’ve broken it all down, state-by-state, below.

How electric vehicle tax credits work in the US

The benefits will not last forever, but to further EV adoption in the US, the federal government and its respective state entities offer several perks to consumers looking to go all-electric. With the newly signed Inflation Reduction Act, we know federal tax credits for electric vehicles are extended for another decade, but state credits and rebates move at an entirely different pace.

That being said, there are plenty of options in a majority of states that you can and should take advantage now. It’s important to understand how these incentives or exemptions vary from the more all-encompassing credits at the federal level.

Federal vs. state electric vehicle tax credits

There are important distinctions between both federal and state electric vehicle tax credits. Most obvious, federal credits apply to the entire United States as a whole while state credits and rebates vary by each territory and can be far more abundant… or not. It all depends on where you live.

For example, while the federal electric vehicle tax credit is quite complicated under its revised terms in the Inflation Reduction Act, the concept of the credit itself remains quite cut and dry. US consumers may qualify for up to $7,500 in federal tax credit for an electric vehicle.

Now there are a bunch of other factors that are and will be in play starting January 1, 2023 when the new terms kick in, but we’ve already delved deep into that for you. If you’d like to learn more about electric vehicle tax credits at the federal level, check out those details here.

Electric vehicle tax credits, rebates, and exemptions vary much more at the state level and can even get more granular down to specific counties or energy companies, depending whether its a state-level or private utility perk available to you.

If that’s confusing, stick with us. We’ve laid it all out piece by piece for you below. Just find your state in the table of contents above, give it a tap or click and see what sort of options are available. There should be plenty… for most states, at least.

State-level information is updated by the US Department of Energy and its alternative Data Fuels Center (AFDC) annually after each state’s legislative session ends. That said, some pages are updated following newly-signed legislation. We ourselves visited many of the state incentive websites to confirm the latest perks available to you for a new EV purchase or charger installation.

Speaking of that, many states offer credits or rebates for electric vehicle purchases or leases, but utility companies also offer incentives for home charger installations. Rather than muck things up further, we’ve separated these benefits into two separate lists for you below, each sorted by participating states. If your state isn’t on here, we recommend writing your respective members congress.

Let’s start with the tax credits available for the purchase or lease of a new or used electric vehicle.

EV tax credits, rebates, incentives, and exemptions by state

Here it is – the complete list of tax credits and rebates for new or used electric vehicle purchases or leases. Hopefully your state is on here and better yet, there are some sweet perks at your disposal. Have a look.
