Since I am retired and my taxable income is low I don't qualify for a tax credit but what does concern me because my car is worth every Penney I paid for it even without out a tax credit. What does concern me is that the government may decide to tax our cars by how many miles are driven. The Government is trying to encourage us to by electric by offering numerous incentives. But what happens if electrics become so popular that the government needs to make up for the loss of taxes charged at the pump. We just had a gas tax increase at the pump in South Carolina and the price of gas is also going up . I have a 7 gallon tank in my new Honda Clarity and I expect that 7 gallon tank last a year. But eventually when people wise up and switch to pure electric or plug in hybrids I think it is almost inevitable for the government to recoup the lost revenue by. charging for miles driven per year. What are your thoughts on this issue?
