    There is a new car tax discount in the Stimulus Bill so that would include EVs.

    Government endorses electric car sales - CarBuyersNoteBook

    So is this a federal law that now forces states not to charge sales tax on EVs? If so that would be huge! This seems to be more than just credits / rebates. Or is this a Washington State only thing? The articles I quoted seem to imply it is nationwide.

    In Arizona, there is no use tax (sales tax) for EVs and the yearly registration fee is a fraction of the cost for ICEs. There was a proposal to tax miles driven at 1.42 cents per mile to fund roads, but it appears to have died in the state house.
