How do I calculate the sales tax?

We calculate that for client files. Sales tax is calculated using the requirements of the DMV statutes. It is based on which book values are allowable for the particular vehicle. It is not based on your purchase price, (unless that is more than book value). Our operations department consults the various book values allowed by the licensing division and selects the lowest one that appears to be allowable.
