Per their site it is depleted. We got a Mach E last year and wasn't able to use it at all for our filed taxes.

Anyone have any idea on what's up with the fund being depleted? I wasn't expecting that when we filed. Part of me is thinking Hogan is responsible and has no intention of funding it.

Wasn't Hogan (and I'm not a fan). Credit had expired, renewed but not effective until 2023 and max price reduced from $58K to $50K (I know, car prices are falling like rocks /s). Thank the General Assembly - don't blame me, I emailed each House member and not ONE had the decency to respond - People's House my ass!

The vehicle credit expired in 2020 and was not renewed when the legislature reduced its agenda to only the most critical bills during the first year of COVID-19.

The replacement bill finally was passed this year. It lowers the base price cap that had been $63,000 to $50,000 to move the funding to more affordable vehicles only. It will not take effect until FY2024 (July of 2023).

Maryland does have a 40% rebate for chargers and their installation.

I think I made the point that this was lazy. Any EV you'll find for that price isn't going to be big enough for a family. So I accused them of hating families. I did a road trip in a crosstrek with just one kid and we didn't have enough room in that. Now with a second and wanting to do more road trips, nothing for that price that is an EV works. If for some BS reason I can't get my Lightning, I'm already lining up an actual family hauler. Explorer is near the top, Expedition is right after. Or anything like that that doesn't push me into luxury brand territory. Because if I'm "too rich" to get a tax credit then I'm "rich enough" to pay the pump :\

Oh Hogan
