Federal Tax Credit Ends Soon

10% back on motorcycles
30% back on charging equipment

Buyers of plug-in electric motorcycles enjoy a 10% federal tax credit on their purchase. However, this incentive expires on 12/31/16. With 2017 models arriving at dealers, now is the time to take advantage of significant savings on a new Zero.

The Electric Motorcycle Federal Tax Credit, also known as the 2-wheeled plug-in tax credit, covers 10% of the purchase price of a Zero, up to $2,500. Plus, electric motorcycle off-board chargers (e.g., Zero Quick Charger) are eligible for a 30% tax credit up to $1,000.

With additional incentives offered by many states and end-of-year savings available on select models, going electric has never been easier. See your Zero Dealer for pricing, availability or to go for a test ride.

Credits are based on the final bill of sale price for the motorcycle (including configuration accessories and additional batteries purchased on the same invoice, less taxes, fees and registration). If the product was discounted, the tax credit applies to the discounted price.

To ensure eligibility for the 30% federal tax credit specifically on charging equipment and accessories, these should be purchased on a separate invoice, which may serve as tax documentation.

*Government agencies offer these incentive programs. Availability and eligibility vary and are beyond Zero Motorcycles’ control. Many programs have limited funding and/or expiration dates. Eligibility for tax credits depends on your personal tax situation. Please consult your tax advisor, attorney, or accountant for details.
