Sales Tax 2001 vs 2002

In California, the sales tax rate was increased by 0.25% for 2002. I read in one of the previous threads that someone had signed a sales contract for the MDX in 2001 with a delivery date scheduled for 2002 and that the dealer said that the sales tax would be based on 2001 rates. I also had a contract dated 7/'01 and I was just notifed that my MDX will be available in 2/'02.

The finance person said that the sales tax would be based on 2002 rates, since the vehicle was not available until 2002. Is this correct, even though I signed contract in July, 2001?

Sales tax is charged by the state not by the dealer. When you do the OFFICIAL paperwork with the vin no., whatever the State tax is at that time is what you pay. Not some contract you signed six months back when you put down a deposit. The dealer is obligated to the sale price promised but not the tax.
