Why do so many people include the sales tax in their OTD quote? Sales tax is non-negotiable and varies by state, so it makes it harder to compare quotes. If you say that the OTD quote includes a sales tax of 6.5% it requires that the OTD number be divided by 1.065 to get a meaningful price for all states. Other costs, like options, registration, and documentation should be included because that's how dealers adjust their profit. Leave sales tax out!

Let folks post all the info they like. Every few years someone comes in here and wants this changed or that changed...bottom line is most folks want ALL the info including the sales tax. So just take out the info from each post that you want...the way things are right now are just fine!
P.S. Was at the Honda store this morning and Honda did a great job with the new Accord. A very impressive car for the money and very upscale especially the interior!

I disagree. Without including the sales tax amount or percentage for their state, other people in this forum will not know what the base price they should be comparing to their offer. I live in MD and the tax rate is 6%. If I just post my OTD price and do not list the tax rate, someone in a state with 3% sales tax or DE with 0% sales tax should be able to do that much better.

This posting is how you should post your purchase. Good job
The Most important info to other forum readers are
Dealership Name and State you purchased or looking into.. Why people dont include this drives me crazy..
1- Your Sale price paid for car with Dest charge included or listed below separate.
2_ Any options on vehicle. And what you paid?
3- Any rebates/ Incentives you recieved.
4- Out the door price should Include.. Doc fee's, Dmv, Your States Sales tax, and % rate.
Most people have no clue to what other states tax rates are so please post your tax rate. WE are not Mind Readers.

That's a great price. The MSRP for the Accord Sport is $24,980, if you paid $20,131.68 + 790 destination charge, you got more than 16% discount. This is the highest discount I have seen for the 2013 Accord. Congratulations!

He said it was the automatic. It is actually 16.25% discount from the MSRP. can anyone tell me if you have seen a higher discount than 16.25% for a 2013 Accord?
This is a good reference for people looking to buy a new Accord.
