Can I round up to 9.75%?
Here's the formula from the Tennessee Car Tax Calculator:
7% State Tax on the sale price minus the trade-in.
1.5% to 2.75% Local Tax on the first $1600 of the purchase.
2.75% Single Article Tax from the second $1600 up to $3200.
9.75% Contract Tax on warranty and maintenance.
Is the local tax based on the vehicle price?
It's calculated from the first $1600 of the purchase multiplied by the local rate of your home address.

What is service contract tax?
It's a tax on prepaid maintenance and extended warranties purchased in conjunction with a vehicle sale.
Single Article Tax limits do not apply to service contract taxes, therefore the full amount of the contract is taxed.
