What you are missing is the selling price of the vehicle... You aren't going to pay MSRP, are you?
There is an unspecified dealer discount in the advertisement...

No, in reality I will negotiate and get (hopefully) a much better price than MSRP. I was just trying to practice to get the numbers posted on their website right.
So, there's a hidden discount somewhere. That makes much more sense.
#172 of 194 How frequently are incentives changed on leases?

I was planning on leasing a Volkswagen CC probably next month, But when I look at the very substantial incentives ($3500) available in April I'm feeling some pressure to do it now. I'm concerned that VW may not extend the incentive into May.
Does anyone know what rationale the car makers use in keeping or pulling incentives from month to month? Is there any public source that can accurately estimate the next months deals?

Here's our VW CC Lease Questions discussion:
However, there is NO source that can tell you what next month's incentives will be. These aren't published anywhere because they would influence buying patterns, and also, because sometimes incentives are based on previous months' sales.

Have a few questions on the sales tax on a lease quote I received for a 2013 Pathfinder Platinum Premium - 3 year/36K . I will list my details below but the total sales tax the dealer calculated on their lease worksheet came out higher then my calc. I am leasing in NJ.
Cap Cost : 41,000
Acq Cost : 595
Adj Cap Cost 40,920
Money Factor: .00056
The total sales tax that the lease worksheet I have is $1,351.20. I am coming in a little less then that if I base my tax calculation off of the total amount that I am technically "borrowing" which would be 16,811.70. Let me know if you have any insight on this topic.

Yes, I do have some insight on the way taxes are computed in NJ as it is done the same way in Ohio. What I need to know is your NJ sales tax rate.

The tax rate in NJ is 7%

Something is missing. Did you capitalize the first payment and/or tax into the lease? If you email me the dealer worksheet, I'll be able to see exactly what's going on with this lease.
