In shopping around for a lease on an e-Golf, I’ve seen a few where the dealer appears to charge the buyer for the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit up front. Here’s my latest offer:
$298*/month for 36 month lease.
$2,995 Plus $7,500 Federal tax credit due at signing.
I’ve seen this a few times, and it seems backwards, so I must be missing something.
It was my understanding that in a lease, some portion of the tax credit should be applied as a Capital Cost reduction or by being added to the Residual Value.
Can anyone explain this?
