California Lead Acid Battery Fee Clarification

We have received some inquiries about whether the hybrid batteries used in hybrid vehicles is subject to the same California Lead – Acid Battery Fee as the standard lead-acid battery in hybrid vehicles.

We discussed this in our recent monthly conference call, as we had initially received conflicting information that both types of batteries are subject to the fee. We reached out to the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration formerly Board of Equalization and have provided CalABC Members with their response.

We hope that you will find this useful and it should clear up any confusion. This letter will also be posted on our website.
