Tax question

Putting together my spreadsheet for what I think I will owe so that I can finance the correct amount through my credit Union. Is the gas guzzler and destination taxed? Im guessing no, but nowadays the government is f'ing me left and right.

It may depend on your state but the tax percentage should be based on your cash sales price---- not on the items on the invoice addendum.

EG: lets say my invoice or msrp is 100k including gas guzzler tax and dest charges...

but I buy the car for 90k; in california I would pay 8% on the 90k number (orange county tax) and conversely if I bought the car for 110k I would still pay 8% of the cash price regardless of the itemization of GG tax and other items.

So youre saying then that you would pay tax on a tax?

it all depends---- In california you pay tax on the cash price of the car. There is no itemization for gas guzzler tax on a retail installment contract in california. The gas guzzler tax is a tax built into the price of the car.

So yes you could indeed be paying tax on part or all the gas guzzler tax at least here where I reside. And technically the gas guzzler charge doesnt say the word tax on the sticker does it?

Same in MA. You do pay state tax on GGT. There was a thread on the M3 boards a while back about it being related to the manufacturer being charged who is passing it along to the buyer. There were people who tried to get out of this part - my guess is that the dealer just included it as part of the deal rather than losing the sale over it.

I wouldn't mind the GGT if it applied to all personal vehicles since the idea is to encourage decreased consumption. Making SUVs and pick-ups exempt is what bugs me.

How about the tax benefit of a trade in. Is that applicable in all states? Not paying tax on the amount they give you for your trade?

Ill answer my own question - I walked into dealer thinking I was not getting the tax benefit on my trade of $37,500 b/c I was trading in a CT titled car for a NJ titled car. Well I got the tax benefit and paid $2600 less.
