Damon,
The biggest issue with the proposed tax is that it does not matter what
the vehicle, if the title indicates that it is electric powered, then
the fee applies. In other words, motor cycles, NEV's, and home
conversions would be taxed the same as a Tesla or a Smith delivery
truck. Not to mention that it is a per vehicle fee, which further
penalizes families with multiple EVs. On top of everuthing else, we only
have about 1,000 registered EVs in Washington State, meaning that the
new tax will raise $100,000 before factoring in the cost of
implementation.
Aii of this effort to give our own state a very public environmental
blavk eye.
