Tax Bill from NY State 2 y 5 mo later....

Yesterday I got a surprise in the mail..a sales tax bill from NY State for about $7500--$4500 plus $3000 in interest and penalties.

It seems they think I imported my 2014 535d x drive without paying sales tax.

First of all, I didn't import it, BMWNA did, and second, BMW Finance owns the car, as it is still on lease to me.

Has this happened to anyone else and how did you deal with it? I have no intention of paying, nor am I liable.

Thanks!!

Send copy of the contract to tax authorities. With a letter of protest. If that does not work. Contact a tax lawyer. Even the state messes up, however they will admit to it too. Don't drag your feet, address it asap.

Yes this happened to me, though not to the monetary extent. I sent the state agency a copy of the registration service bill that included the sales tax payment, they said "sorry" and closed the case. good luck. N4S

My dealer is faxing a copy of the lease. I could not register the car if sales tax had not been paid. NY requires taxes be paid in full at inception.

I'll let you know when I get the all clear.

As a side note, dealer says a few of his ED customers and other brand ED customers are getting these letters also. I guess NY is cash poor and looking for money under mattresses.

It happened to me in Connecticut twice. No big deal. Everything is on the up-and-up with respect to ED and you should be fine. I agree that taking care of this expeditiously is beneficial.
