Leah Passmore commented on Electric Bike Emailer 2019-10-09 09:57:45 -0700Please consider taking the PST off of purchase of ebikes, similar to purchasing a normal bike. Or have rebates similar to purchasing an electric car.
My husband has had an ebike since 2016 without any tax exemption. He uses it daily to commute to work to save on gas and to also allow me to have the one car we have for our family of 5. I am now considering getting an ebike to commute my toddler to daycare & work instead of driving. Again to save on gas and other reasons like the environment and not having to wait in traffic. It would be amazing to have the government give incentives to purchase environmentally friendly options for daily commuting like ebikes.
Please remove PST on the sale of ebikes or give similar rebates like there are on electric cars.
