Help with car registration on a lease
I have a problem. Just as I was moving to Iowa, I decided to lease a new car in Illinois. I felt I would have a better selection and be able ot work a better deal on my trade-in and dealing with a much smaller local Honda dealer (local meaning only 50 miles away)
Anyway... I went ot the DMV in Iowa to register my vehicle and I was told I needed to pay a 5% road useage tax (of the remiaing lease value) to register here. So baiscally they want $850!!! Now when I leased my vehicle, I paid 7.25% sales tax... plus a little more since I was in Cook County.
Now, can I get a refund of what I paid to Illinois...or am I going to get taxed twice? My other option is to hope my registration renewal gets forwarded in the mail in Jan. to my Iowa address.
On a positive note, the DMV is located at the county courthouse in town. There are no lines and the people working there are very friendly. In Illinois they hire cold emotionless machines disguissed as humans.
