Tax-Advantaged Trade-In Strategies at Findlay Subaru Prescott

Buying a car is a big deal -- both emotionally and financially. With the typical new or used car costing anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 and up, inevitable expenses like sales tax can make a significant impact on how much you pay out the door. Luckily, there are purchase strategies that can help minimize the tax burden incurred when you upgrade to a new set of wheels. One such tactic? Trading in vs. selling your old car independently.

Our team has more information, but the bottom line is this: trading in at an Arizona car dealer like ours can help reduce how much you pay Uncle Sam when getting the keys to your next ride. We’ve got the details below, but we suggest stopping by our showroom and letting our auto financing experts explain how a vehicle trade can impact what sales tax you ultimately pay on your new car.
