In CA private car sales pay a 'use tax' instead of 'sales tax.' So far as I can tell it is the same rate.

OP: I realize that you collected less than the maximum possible tax credits but if your potential buyers are x-shopping your car with a new car where they are eligible for full tax credits, that is the discount they will use in deciding whether to buy your car.
You are correct, but I was addressing your statement that you were deducting the tax credit I received. I was pointing out that what I received is not the maximum tax credit possible for some taxpayers.

You are getting a front row view why dumping a recently bought new car is so expensive. If I were you I would accept that Carvana offer yesterday.
To be sure, but the Carvana offer is good until the 23rd and KBB and NADA are pretty reliable about resale value. I couldn't find any of the same year and model with equal mileage for a lower price. If KBB and NADA say private party value is $24,000 - $26,000, I'm inclined to believe them. Especially since that's backed up by Carvana's willingness to buy at $23,000. They're not in business to lose money. However, if nobody wants to pay that it's no skin off my back. I'll just sell it to Carvana. I would be remiss if I didn't try private party sales first.
