Is There a Texas Hybrid Tax Credit?

Signing Finance Documents for Car

Most Humble drivers know about the environmental benefits of driving an electric or hybrid car. They’re also aware that they’ll save a significant amount on fuel costs. But are there other financial benefits, such as a Texas hybrid car tax incentive for buying or leasing an electric car, like the Sonata Hybrid? For example, does Texas give a tax credit for hybrid cars? Well, instead of a Texas hybrid tax credit, there is a Texas electric car tax rebate that is available for a limited time. Let’s take a closer look at the details.


Does Texas Give a Tax Credit for Hybrid Cars?

You may have heard about how other states may offer a hybrid tax credit or electric car tax rebate, but what about the Lone Star State? Does Texas give a tax credit for hybrid cars or electric vehicles that are driven on our Houston roads? While there is no Texas hybrid tax “credit”, the state is offering a Texas electric car tax rebate for hybrid and electric cars. Here are the details:

  • The Texas Emissions Reduction Program (TERP) offers a $2500 Rebate for the purchase or lease of an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle.
  • The vehicle must have been bought or leased on or after September 1, 2021.
  • The rebate applies retroactively.
  • The program lasts until January 7, 2023.
  • The rebates are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be given out until all 2,000 available rebates have been distributed.
