So I was looking at my Mazda CX-9 statement this month and I saw that the cost of the lease increased. I was dumbfounded by this and called Mazda to see why. They said that due to tax rate increases the cost of the lease increased. In my case Jacksonville Tax rate went from 7% to 7.5%. Its not a huge increase but I just signed the lease 2 months ago and its already increased.
Are they allowed to do this? I leased the car in Nov when it was the lower tax rate, technically they had the sale price and the taxes already calculated for that period in time. Any guidance on if they can increase the cost of the lease to me?
