"Buyer must agree to sign a talent release to be used for public relations purposes." - Not sure what that means..

yea $26k is rough, but $45k retail...course MSRP is high...that is alot of room for profit
You sure the MSRP is that high though? I'm seeing $31k range (after tax credit), unless this is fully-loaded.

It starts at 31K because of an $8,000 tax credit. Actual upfront MSRP is $39,000 and can go up to $45K. Obviously simple math shows that if you qualify for the full $8,000 tax credit then the most expensive one would be $37,000.

I think its actually pretty crooked that Chevrolet can show the price after tax credit. I haven't seen any other manufacturer do that. I know Nissan did with the Leaf solely to show it was still a better deal than the Volt.

But you have sales tax, which you will have to pay.

Edit: You are correct but it is sales tax, not income tax.

Also it may be worth it for you to buy an hours worth of CPA's time to see of you would owe any income tax (Federal and State). You didn't win a car but it might be a grey area.

But don't forget about the tax credit you can probably take.

I haven't checked what these are going for used....really it should be any higher than $31K right now (since that is potentially the new price) you could make somewhere around $5,000....unless someone is willing to pay more to not end up getting the tax rebate (some people aren't intelligent).

Also someone please correct if I'm wrong, but if you sell it for profit then it will be taxed 15% for capital gains.

edit: That's true you should be able to claim the tax credit for purchasing the car. So that will help offset some of the money you would lose because of capital gains.
