A manufacturer's rebate that is to be applied to the Drive-off Amount. A portion of or all of the Rebate can be applied as a Capitalized Cost Reduction - see Cash Down below.

Cash Down
A cash downpayment that is to be applied as a Capitalized Cost Reduction. If all or a portion of the Rebate is to be applied add that amount to any cash amount. For example, if a $2,000 Cap Reduction is made in cash plus a $1,000 Rebate that is also applied to the Cap Reduction, enter $3,000 in this field. You can tap on the + or - to change the value by $100.

Turn ON a switch below to capitalize the item at the right (see Acq Fee, XX Tax Rate, Reg Fee below). If not capitalized the amount will appear in the Drive Off amount.

Acq Fee
Acquisition Fee on the lease. Turn the switch at the left ON to capitalize the fee.

XX Tax Rate
If you select a Sales Tax State to calculate the sales tax, enter the tax rate here. The 2-letter state abbreviation will show in place of the XX, e.g., for New York, NY Tax Rate will appear.

To capitalize the sales tax, turn the switch at the left ON. (In states that tax the payment, only the tax on the downpayment can be capitalized because the tax on the payment is paid monthly. In other states, all sales tax is capitalized.)

Reg Fee
Registration & License Fees and/or other non-taxable items. To capitalize these, turn the switch at the left ON.

Waive Advance Payment?
Turn this switch ON to waive the first payment, e.g., a 36-month lease would have no payment in advance and only 35 regular payments that start in one month (this switch has no effect on Simple Interest type leases).

Analyze Lease?
Turn this switch ON to have some additional calculations made which will appear at the end of the full disclosure:

    o The Effective Payment per month which spreads the Cap Cost Reduction and other Drive Off items over the lease,

    o The Net Proceeds of the lease after deducting fees,

    o Equivalent Interest Rates: a) if the vehicle is returned at the end of the lease, and b) if the vehicle is purchased at the end. (These calculations includes the impact of the acquisition fee, disposition fee, and whether the first payment was waived. The nominal interest rate is also shown.)
