Low-Income Californians Without Cars Poised for Tax Credits

Low-income Californians would get a $1,000 tax credit per household if they don’t own a car under a bill lawmakers sent to Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday.

The credit is meant to offer incentives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars, according to bill author Sen. Anthony Portantino (D). California regulators have set a goal of reducing emissions 40% by 2030, and the California Air Resources Board voted Aug. 25 to effectively ban gas-powered vehicle sales by 2035.
