Lakewood tax refund for electric vehicles

What you should know if you’re driving green

Posted

If you’re a Lakewood resident who purchased an all-electric vehicle prior to April 22, 2021, the city wants you to know they may owe you some money. 

You might be due a refund of municipal sales tax paid at the time of purchase. But you’ll need to be proactive in collecting it.

According to a statement on the city’s website, the refunds only apply to purchases of 100% electric-powered vehicles, batteries or controls made July 1, 2017, through April 21, 2021.

If you think you’re owed this refund from the city, you can complete a Claim for Refund Form at: www.lakewood.org/files/assets/public/finance/pdfs/3rd-party-claim-for-refund-ev.pdf

Once filled out, you can email the form to taxauditor@lakewood.org, along with a completed W9 form and a copy of the invoice or registration indicating Lakewood’s tax was collected by the dealership or Jefferson County.
