The Oklahoma Tax Commission recently ruled that a lawn mowed with a “propane mower conversion” fails to qualify for an income tax credit for “clean burning motor vehicle fuel property.” On the other hand, Oklahomans with lawn tractors may be relieved that they won’t have to get license plates.
Oklahoma’s Alternative Fuel Vehicle Income Tax Credit provides a state income tax credit of 10% of the cost of a new “alternative fuel vehicle,” with a maximum credit of $1,500. The credit also can apply to the costs of converting a standard vehicle to burn alternative fuels, which include compressed or liquefied natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas.
Oklahoma isn’t the only state with special tax incentives for alternate fuel vehicles. Contact our State and Local Tax team if you think you might qualify.
