1) When I sell my car, I will need to pay off the buyout amount with BMW Financial. Is there tax above the buyout amount stated by BMW? Do I pay any tax on the amount I receive for the sale of my car to a private individual?
2) When I purchase the M3 from a separate individual, do I report the sale amount to the state/fed and pay tax on that amount? Is there any "wash" between the amount I sell my car for and the amount of the car I purchase?
I have traded/leased my last several cars and cannot remember how the private sale works. I know there is some sort of tax advantage if you can work a trade-in with a dealer. What am I about to face?
