EV Rebates & Tax Credits
Fast & Friendly Service with a Smile for All
The availability of the credit will depend on several factors, including the vehicle’s MSRP, its final assembly location, battery component and/or critical minerals sourcing, and your modified adjusted gross income (AGI).
In accordance with new IRS regulations, beginning January 1, 2024, Clean Vehicle Tax Credits must be initiated and approved at the time of sale.
Buyers are advised to obtain a copy of the IRS’s confirmation that a “time-of-sale” report was submitted successfully by the dealer.
FY 2024 MEA EVSE Rebate Program

Eligible applicants are encouraged to apply even after funding has been exhausted to hold their place in line when the program is renewed for a new fiscal year.
