In most states and some local jurisdictions, we are required to collect sales/use tax on each monthly lease payment. Since the lease payment was calculated in advance and tax rates can change periodically, this amount is billed separately.
In certain states, the full amount of tax is due at the inception of the lease. In these situations, the tax is added to the equipment cost to calculate the monthly payment. (See Upfront Tax.)
When applicable by law, taxes may be applied to late charges, one-time documentation fees, insurance, property tax and interim rent. Other taxes you may be subject to are CA E-Waste, Chicago Use Tax, FL Doc Stamp and TN Single Article.
If you believe that you are exempt from sales/use tax, please email an exemption certificate to Customer Care.
