What is the Low Emission Vehicle Credit?

This credit is the lesser of 10% of the cost of the vehicle or $2,500 for the purchase or lease of a new low emission vehicle. You may also claim a credit for the conversion of a standard vehicle to a low emission vehicle which is equal to 10% of the cost of conversion, not to exceed $2,500 per converted vehicle.

Certification approved by the Environmental Protection Division of the Department of Natural Resources must be included with the return for any credit claimed under this provision. A statement from the vehicle manufacturer is not acceptable.

A low emission vehicle is defined as an "alternative fuel" vehicle and does not include any gasoline powered vehicles (i.e. hybrids). A "low speed vehicle" does not qualify for this credit. For more information, refer to O.C.G.A. 48-7-40.16.
