I'm maybe 2 to 3 weeks away from delivery and need to commit to whether to lease or purchase the vehicle. Reasons for either approach aside, my questions stem from conflicting information from the store, Tesla leasing, and the forums. Can the Georgia TAVT of 7% be rolled into the payments like other car leases in Georgia, or does it have to be paid separately with Tesla leasing? Is the TAVT applied to the full value of the vehicle or just to the lease portion? So applied to either $80k for the full cost, or applied to $36k for 3 years of $1k a month in payments If the TAVT is applied to the full cost of the vehicle, does trading in a vehicle during a lease affect the portion of the MS sale price that is eligible for tax? With a purchase my understanding is that it would work like this; Model S is $80k, Trade in is worth $30k, pay the 7% TAVT on $50k (80 - 50), instead of paying the 7% tax on $80k. I'm curious if this also applies with a lease. Thanks. Without forums like this one many of us would be lost in our delivery and ownership experiences.
