Deputies of the Moscow City Duma have made appropriate amendments to the law of the city of Moscow “On Transport Tax”.
In accordance with the innovations, owners of electric vehicles are completely exempt from paying transport tax. The exemption does not apply to vehicles in which both an electric motor and a different type of motor are installed.
“This approach to taxing car owners will increase interest among residents of Moscow in buying electric cars instead of ordinary cars, switching most car owners to cleaner modes of transport,” said Maria Bagreeva, deputy director of the Department of Economic Policy and Development of Moscow.
For hybrid cars, these benefits do not apply. The period of validity of benefits - 5 years - from 2020 to 2024 inclusive. The Irkutsk and Ulyanovsk Regions are already taking this initiative.
