You pay tax on the monthly payments. So if your payment is $500 a month, with a 8.25% tax rate...then your tax would be $41.25 for a total of $541.25. Thats how it worked on my lease here in California.

: In leaseing a BMW does one pay state sales tax on the entire cap cost or just on the differecne between the cap cost and the residual value? Please advise. My dealer is saying I have to pay sales tax on the entire amount and he will role the tax into the lease payments.
