Does anyone know details of WA ev sales tax exemption?
I want to lease BMW i3 and save some money on tax.
On the one hand https://www.dol.wa.gov/ states that
New vehicle transactions must not exceed $45,000 in price or lease payments.
On the other hand, BMW dealer says that the rule is based purely on car’s MSRP and not even sales price. Hence, dealer discount won’t help and basically there’s no way to save on taxes, because even base i3 MSRP with destination charge included is > $45000.
Any details would be greatly appreciated.
Also, would leasing from another state (ca) qualify me for WA sales tax exemption?
