I am planning to pick up my X at the factory, what is the tax rate in Fremont?
A bill was just debated to eliminate the tax, but I'm not sure if it's in effect yet.
It doesn't matter where you buy the car, the sales tax is calculated on the home address where the car is registered.
Sorry, but this is incorrect. Do a search here for Factory deliverues for out of California residents. This issue is old news. Until California changes it's laws you pay Cali sales tax when takg delivery in Cali.
The tax rate varies by county and maybe even the city in California, I am just try to find out what the tax rate is in Freemont. I believe that you pay the tax rate of where you buy it, not where you reside.
The sales tax in Fremont is 9.5%. Last time I bought a car the dealership adjusted the sales tax down to the county where I lived since it was less than the county I was purchasing the car.
Perfect and thanx for the information about the possibility of having it changed.

I just found this...
The OP is a California resident.
Sorry. I missed that. Can't tell where dbsynergy is from though. ;-)
From a California resident order showing the final price and being picked up at the Fremont factory:
"This address (my listed home address) will determine your sales tax and registration fees."
What's interesting is that Tesla doesn't show a breakdown of the "applicable taxes and fees". (I'm requesting this info). But based on the final figure, it looks like the sales tax IS based on my home address. In my case 8.75% vs 9.5% in Fremont, CA.
A suspicious person might wonder, "What are those fees?". In my case, they are over $700. Undercoating? Miracle paint protector? Dealer prep? VIP delivery service? Snack fee for plant tour? A full tank of electrons?
If you go on your My Tesla page and click the FAQ, there is a helpful section on sales tax and covers picking up in Fremont from out of state.
