    11. Sales tax. If you buy equipment out-of-state, the seller will not charge you sales tax. If you lease, you may be required to pay sales tax on the amount of each payment, meaning that you are not only paying sales tax on the equipment, but you’re also paying sales tax on the interest and service charges. This can easily add 10% to the cost of the equipment, on top of the interest.
