Tenn. Code Ann. § 55-4-116
Public Chapter 181 (2017), also known as the IMPROVE Act, added a $100 fee for electric vehicles beginning July 1, 2017.
- The electric vehicle registration fee is in addition to other applicable registration fees.
- Low-speed and Medium-speed electric vehicles (such as golf carts) are exempt from this $100 fee.
- The electric vehicle registration fee applies to initial registrations and renewals of the electric vehicle.
- Electric motorcycles are excluded from paying this additional fee.
O03 transactions will give credit for electric vehicle fee from the previous registration. The calculation is $100 divided by 12 months ($8.33) times the number of months: (100 / 12) * number of months. The final credit amount is rounded up to the nearest $0.25.
