That's what I'm saying.
In VA, you have to pay sales tax on the full car price up front.
your lease price include: car price + tax + title, tag etc. So you don't pay tax on your payment because you paid tax already when you signed the lease agreement.
In CA, you only pay sales tax on the monthly payment, not the car price. So when CA sales tax went up, every lease payment went up even though they leased their car 1-2 years ago.
And congrat! I knew it's not going to take that long to find a new owner.
It was such great deal for near VA peeps!
