ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Department of Revenue is working to correct an error that led to hundreds of electric car owners being denied a tax credit.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1cxNnpV ) that more than 800 people were notified that the state mistakenly denied them a $5,000 tax credit last year for owning zero-emission vehicles. Officials say the mistake was traced to a data entry error. Department spokesman Nick Genesi says a missing data field in a database caused the error.

Genesi says workers are manually re-applying the credits to 825 people who should have been eligible for it.

Georgia lawmakers this year voted to eliminate tax credits for low and zero-emissions vehicles as of June 30.
