Buy a new car on Obama! (sort of)

Here's an article from the Washington Post that popped up on an income tax credit for sales taxes on new cars that's part of the stimulus package. Go out and buy a car!

Here's another article from examiner.com, one from KFVS12 and one from the Middletown Journal. If you'd like to look for more, here's the Google search.

While I try to restrict this blog to discussions about state sales and use taxes, everyone once in a while ya gotta broaden your horizons. Particularly if it's timely.

While we're on the topic of news articles, here's a hilarious one about a guy who was trying to pay $1.50 in taxes that the store didn't charge. Beware of your government, Floridians!

Sales Tax Guy
Buy a CAR, dang it!

Don't forget our coming events!

Awesome post!

If you move forward to buy a car, here is a tip:

When buying anew car you should bring a piece of paper to the dealership and make sure you do all the math of the finance calculations yourself. The point is not that they will do the math wrong. The point is you will see exactly how the deal is structured. Do not be afraid to take the time to do this or look like a fool.

Here are five other steps that may save you thousands if you follow them next time you buy a car: http://www.butasforme.com/2009/03/29/how-to-buy-a-new-or-used-car/
