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.

This is different state to state. In PA, the $1000 along with any other incentives is subtracted from the purchase price, pre-tax.

In CA, rebates from the dealer are not taxable, however rebates and incentives from the manufacturer ARE taxable.

Thanks! How did you learn/where can I confirm this? I wish my CA could have explained this to me as clearly.

I guess one thing good about living in Oregon. No sales tax! Save thousands of dollars in buying a vehicle. The rain 7-6 month and grey skies for 8 months not so good..

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).

I attended the Drive for Team USA event in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area in late June, but don't recall ever receiving an email or paper mail voucher. Am I in some database somewhere? Should I have received something via email, or paper mail?

Thanks,

John

What's the law in NY? PO from my CA deducts this $1,000 from the cost, before taxes.

If only it worked that way. Person purchasing must be the same as the person that did the event.
