House Bill 1332 approved by Colorado legislature


Are you in the market for an electric vehicle?

You’re in luck then.  The process of claiming your tax credit became much easier this summer, with the passage of HB 1332.  Beginning in January 2017, your electric vehicle tax credit will be assignable at point of sale.  That means no more complicated calculations come April when taxes are due.
