I looked up my TTL for Montezuma county in case it is any help:
2.9% state tax on sales price of car
0.4% District tax on sales price of car
2.1% Ownership tax on 80% of car MSRP
That is substantially lower than El Paso County...more so Colorado Springs in general.
Indeed. Google says
The state of Colorado gets 2.9 percent. El Paso County adds a 1.23 percent tax. If you live in Colorado Springs, you pay another 3.12 percent. If you live within the boundaries of the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority, that entity collects a 1 percent sales tax.

That adds up to 8.25% if you are within the PP authority
... And ownership tax, another 1.785% of MSRP
For a grand total of 10.035% taxes
The $3200 in taxes you mention would then work out to a $31,888.39 MSRP
But then the $34k loan does not compute. I would expect $31,889.39 + $3,200 - $5,000 = $30,089.39
So either some numbers are wrong, are missing, or the dealership owes you some money.
Is an extended warranty hiding in there somewhere ?
