Can someone who has cashed in please confirm how it all worked out? thanks.

Any others have experiences either way?
Can anyone else comment on this...? Jon come save the day please!

Does this discount come off the negotiated price which you THEN pay tax on,

or do you pay tax on the FULL amount of the vehicle, THEN get $1000 off the full amount?

My dealership seems to think it's the latter; where I have to pay tax on the full amount of the vehicle. Is this correct? So I am paying tax on $1,000 that I didn't really spend on the car?

If anyone can comment w/ their experiences it would be very helpful... Thanks in advance.
