Lease buy out, California

Trying to buy out my lease.
Can Ford dealership TAX return fee 500$ (lease agreement) add paperwork fee 85$ they just add?
California, Los Angeles
Thank you

I believe you have to buy it out at the same dealership you leased it from

Yes, a dealer can charge a doc fee for processing your buyout. Why would you even be charged a “return fee” if you are not returning it?

Can they tax the paperwork fees?
I understand, i have to pay tax on residual value.

Can dealer tax " purchase option fee"?
