Issues

Fuel taxes

If a bill proposed by Regier passes, owners of electric and hybrid vehicles would pay 1 cent per mile and one-half cent per mile in taxes, respectively. Before that bill was proposed, diesel fuel customers paid a state tax of 27 cents per gallon of gasoline.

“For those who are buying gasoline and diesel we’re paying the road tax…They’re basically being exempt from paying this tax” Regier said. “It’s not a new tax. It’s just applying the tax we do have to electric (vehicles).”

Regier said owners of electric cars put an average of 10,000 miles on the road per year and would pay about $100 each year if the tax is enacted. He said that’s roughly what residents who drive cars that get 25 miles per gallon pay in gasoline tax each year.

Regier said it is difficult to tell how much revenue the bill would generate given that he’s not certain how many electric vehicles are in Montana.

Regier said he would be surprised if the bill had opposition among electric vehicle owners.

“Where are they going to drive those electric cars? If they have an electric car they still need a road to drive on,” Regier said.[3]
