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.
When I picked up our car from Jon, Calif sales tax was calculated/paid on the negotiated price of the car which included the destination charge, training fee, and MACO fee. The $1000 BMWNA rebate was then applied after taxes as part of our down payment. Apparently, this is standard in Calif. (Jerry wants his full pound of flesh).
