BMW Lease Transfer - Taxes

, , ,

I’m in Texas and trying to figure out tax implications of a BMW lease takeover from CT.

Would a transfer be considered a purchase, thus I would owe full sales tax to Texas? Would BMWFS allow me to capitalize the Texas taxes and recast the entire lease?

Not sure how CT taxes leases and if that has any bearing on the transfer from my perspective.

AFAIK, yes.


What’s the difference regardless? Between paying $3,000 upfront on a ~$50,000 car or paying $200 extra in just tax per month for 15 months?

It’s a terrible financial decision regardless.
