Nevada Lawmakers to weigh Tax at EV Charging Stations (SB114)

Electric car owners in Nevada could soon be required to pay a 10 percent tax when charging their vehicles under legislation proposed by Republican state Sen. James Settelmeyer.

Introduced on Monday, SB114 would impose a 10 percent surcharge on electric vehicle charging ports and deposit the tax funds in the State Highway Fund, the budgetary account for road construction and repair funded primarily by gasoline taxes. If approved, the bill would take effect in 2020.
