What you need to know:
Texas state legislators are considering SB 1728 and HB 3531, bills that propose a $200 annual fee for electric vehicles, which is almost double what the average driver pays in annual gas tax, and triple what some internal combustion engine vehicles pay annually and incremental to current registration fees.
EV drivers already pay a tax on the electricity they use to power their vehicles, a tax not paid by other drivers. It not fair to make EV drivers to pay essentially two times the amount of everyone else.
The DMV’s 2020 report to the Legislature determined that the average light duty vehicle pays an average of nearly $103 in state gasoline tax revenue per vehicle. Using that same calculation, drivers of more fuel-efficient vehicles pay as little as $60 per year for average vehicle miles traveled.
If you oppose the extra fees, consider contacting your State Senators and Representatives to let them know what these bills mean to you. Ask your legislators to vote NO on SB 1728 & HB 3531.
