Car Leasing in New Jersey (NJ)

As of my last update in September 2021, car leasing and financing options in New Jersey (NJ) are widely available through various dealerships, banks, credit unions, and financial institutions. However, it’s essential to note that the specific offerings, interest rates, and terms may vary depending on the lender and your credit history.

In New Jersey leases often do not require any type of a down payment. All you usually have to pay is the first month’s payment, a security deposit, the acquisition fee and other fees and taxes. But, as with a purchase, if you want to lower your monthly payments you can always pay more upfront.

Regarding sales tax in New Jersey, a motor vehicle lease is subject to Sales Tax unless a valid exemption applies. The person who leases the motor vehicle from the dealership (the lessee) is responsible for paying Sales Tax on the transaction. The dealership (the lessor) is responsible for collecting and remitting the Sales Tax to New Jersey.

Just like traditional financing, leasing a new car usually involves an initial down payment followed by monthly payments over the course of the lease term; however, instead of paying off a loan, you’re paying for the value that the car loses as you drive it.


  1. Car Leasing: Car leasing allows you to use a vehicle for a set period (usually 2-4 years) by making monthly payments. At the end of the lease, you can either return the car or have the option to buy it at its residual value. Leasing can be attractive for those who prefer lower monthly payments and enjoy driving new vehicles more frequently. It’s crucial to understand the terms of the lease, such as mileage limits and wear-and-tear guidelines.
  2. Car Financing: Auto financing, on the other hand, involves borrowing money from a lender to purchase a vehicle outright. You then repay the loan over a specific period, typically 3-7 years, with interest. Once the loan is fully paid off, you own the vehicle. Car financing is suitable for individuals who want full ownership of the car and have a longer-term commitment.
