Data recently released from the Department of Natural Resources who oversees the Georgia ZEV and LEV tax credit program shows that tax claims grew a modest $2 million (+14%) on 25% increase in claimants. So what gives? Actual claim/filer went DOWN by -9% because the filing household could not use the entire $5,000 tax credit! So the tax credit actually helped middle income Georgia residents afford to make the transition into an electric vehicle.
The data further shows that claims are not the $50-60 million range State Legislator Chuck Martin (R- Alpharetta) said they were. More ‘fuzzy’ math by Georgia Legislators!
