We placed an order on a 100D this last week. We were fortunate enough to have sold our Model S for what we were asking for. Tesla only offered us $38,000.00 for trade in. I know this would have helped the final tax calculation. Here in Texas, the rate for new car tax is 6.25% Motor Vehicle Sales and Use Tax This is crazy. Well, there goes my federal tax credit. ...and to think the state of South Carolina has a cap of $500.00. To me, this is a sad part of the excitement with Tesla ownership. Please share any thoughts, ideas or consideration. Based on some simple calculations, I’m looking at loosing over $7,000.00. This is a big hit in our world.
