I would guess that when they paper this deal (which you absolutely shouldn't do) they would show your purchase price as $110,400 and that 6K tax line would be much smaller, reflecting the 6% of the net caps you have listed -$2,200 and $750.
He could be living in what is called an "up front state" where tax is paid up front on either a purchase or lease. He will be able to advise better but there are states that require taxes on the full purchase price of a lease.
