Florida may remove tax on electric cars

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA - Florida would remove state sales tax on electric cars and give businesses who use them a tax credit under a bill moving through the House.

Rep. Adam Hasner, who leased an electric car for 90 days last year, is sponsoring the legislation (HB 879). The House Energy & Utilities Policy Committee unanimously approved the bill just recently.

Afterward, Hasner, a Republican from Delray Beach, said: "This is a way for Florida to take the lead in advancing the electric car movement and getting more cars on the road that use zero gas and have zero emissions."

The bill also would provide a $2,000 rebate for the first 100 entities that install public recharging stations for electric cars.
