Sales tax in most states are calculated after all dealer fees, destination fees, and GG "tax", basically the bottom line.

I was in the same situation, I negoitated my car to $X, the dealer in order to balance their books, wrote up the itemized receipt as $base-cost+$fees=$X. I took the itemized receipt to my state title office to register the car, and they told me they tax it on the bottom line, $X.
