How Trump’s tax plan is costing the auto industry

BLOG

A big part of the tax bill Trump is touting to Congress is a $1.4 trillion tax cut that will help automakers and auto workers alike.

But the big winners in the bill aren’t the automakers.

They’re the investors who put their money in these companies.

And there’s a lot of money to be made for them. 

In a series of articles for Recode, we’ve been analyzing the tax plan, looking at what it will cost automakers and how much money they’ll make.

The first article examined the estimated revenue losses for the Cadillac and Buick models of the C7 and C8 models.

Then we looked at the impact on the Cadillac sales of the 2017 Cadillac CTS and CTS Hybrid.

And in the second article, we took a closer look at the expected cost of a C7, C8, and C9 crossover.

The last one, covering the 2018 Cadillac C7 or C7 Edge, was written by Dan Kahan, an auto industry analyst who has worked for Ford, GM, Fiat Chrysler, Hyundai, Kia, and others.

We asked Kahan for his take on the impact of the Trump tax cuts on the auto sector. 

“If you take the C-pillar in 2019, you are looking at about $8 billion in additional costs,” he said. 

Kahan also looked at how the new Cadillac would be taxed on the C8 crossover. 

The Cadillac C6 is taxed at a much lower rate than the C6.

But what does that mean in terms of cost?

According to Kahan: “If you look at a C6 or C6 Edge, the cost of the car will be between $9 and $11,000, so it’s probably $8 to $9,000 more than the original.

So there are going to be some costs that go up with the C5.” 

“You might be looking at a little bit less on the crossover,” Kahan added.

“The crossover will be a bit less expensive.”

The C7 is currently tax-free, and the C9 will be in 2018.

But because of the Cadillac tax cuts, the Crossover and C7 are tax-advantaged.

That means you get to write off the full $1,500,000 of tax you paid on the original car, plus any applicable depreciation and any other costs that are incurred in the year of ownership.

So if you buy a Cadillac C5, you can write off a whopping $12,000 on it, plus you’ll get to deduct all the depreciation and other costs incurred for the year. 

So, if you bought a C5 or C5 XL, you could write off $14,000 or $15,000 for the C3 or C4, respectively.

If you bought an C6, you’d get a $10,000 write-off for the 2017 C6 and $16,000 if you purchased a C8.

That’s the first time a Crossover has been exempt from the Cadillac CCA. 

For the 2018 Crossover, the tax-saving benefits extend to the cost and depreciation of the body.

The tax code treats a car as a new vehicle, so if you’re paying $8,000 in the CCA and you want to write it off at the end of the year, you write off that $8k on your 2017 tax return.

You then write off any other expenses incurred during the year like depreciation, insurance, or other things you paid for that year.

The Crossover will only be taxed as a second-hand vehicle once it’s purchased, so the tax break only lasts as long as the C2 and C3 models of a new car. 

And the CX crossover is the first Crossover to be exempt from CCA altogether.

The Cadillac CX4, which was introduced in 2018, is not tax-deductible.

So the tax benefits will only last for a year.

That will be the case for 2019 and 2020, but the Cadillac will not be taxed in 2021.

That leaves 2019 and 2021 as the only years when the Cadillac’s tax-credit is limited. 

But, as you may have noticed, the Cadillac is exempt from Cadillac’s CCA rules for 2019.

This means that, unlike the Cx, it will not get to keep its $1 million in CCA deductions, and it’ll get a tax credit of only $500, up to $1m per car.

But unlike the Cadillac, the 2018 model CX5 is tax-exempt. 

This means that the tax savings will only go to the 2018 and 2019 CX models of each Crossover.

For 2018, the maximum benefit is $1 m.

For 2019, it’s $1 M. For 2020, it’ll be $1/m. 

If you bought the 2017 model Cx5 and paid $10k in the 2017 tax, you’ll end up paying $3,000.
