Wondering how feasible this is to avoid paying double sales tax. In WA state. Do I need to go through a Nissan dealership or NMAC directly?
Thx for any advice!
The state will find a way to get their cut, one way or another. What you're considering is usually not worth the hassle, if it can be done. NMAC will typically only give the lessee the option to purchase at the end of the lease. If not purchased, they take the car back and it usually ends up at auction. Unless they offer a really good deal, it is usually better to give the car back and find something else.
