So Apple is offering $525 trade in value for my X 256. But I heard if I turn the phone in it subtracts from the total price so you are effectively paying 40-50 less in sals tax. i.e. new phone is 1250 -525= $725 so you are saving 40-50 in sales tax. Is that true or do you still owe the full tax?

Why would they subsidize the tax payable on a new device? You should just assume that any taxes on the sale of your phone back to Apple is included in the $525 price.

someone was saying if you buy full price - you pay tax only on the net price vs if you do the 1up program you still pay full tax just smaller payments.
