Connecticut offers a corporate business tax credit in the amount of 10% of the incremental cost of alternative fuel vehicle. For example, a vehicle normally priced at $15,000 that costs $20,000 due to added alternative fuel features, would be eligible for a credit of $500 ($5,000 x 10%). This credit is allowable for vehicles powered exclusively by natural gas, propane, or electricity. There is no limit to the total amount of the credit, which if greater than the total amount of taxes due in one year, may be carried forward for up to three years.
