I just went through the Fools "Faxathon" sending out bid requests to dealers. I used the Fools form fax cover letter that states to show all expenses including "tax liabilities" among others.I just got a qoute back from one dealer showing his car quote as $18,700 + 105 for documentation = $18,800 with a note next to it saying "signed, sealed, delivered". My first thought is what about the tax?The normal sales tax in my state is 5%. When a dealer sells you a car I believe the taxes are added to the bill, correct? If yes then is the Fleet Manager doing a lowball sales pitch?Thanks in advance.Best Regards,- MikePS - He didn't list prep fees, title costs, or anything else the Fool fax cover letter requested. Just the documentation fees implying the above $18,800 is a done deal. Seems a bit odd.PPS - This is my first car in almost 14 years as you probably can tell by the simplistic questions. :)
