  • Marlin uses tax software that is used by many leasing companies to compute the tax estimate. The software takes the contract’s assessed (depreciated) value and then multiplies that value by the tax jurisdictions previous year’s tax rate. If Marlin has an actual tax assessment on file for the equipment, the rate used is 90% of the prior year’s assessment or 80% of two years prior.

  • Under the terms of the lease agreement, the lessee agreed to reimburse Marlin for any such taxes paid on the leased equipment.

  • The property tax bill Marlin receives contains information on all leased equipment in a given jurisdiction as opposed to a bill for each piece of equipment or for each lease. To preserve the confidentiality of our lessees, Marlin cannot send you a copy of the actual tax bill, however Marlin can send you a detailed breakdown for your lease. You may contact your local tax office to verify the asset information Marlin is reporting on Marlin’s filed tax return and to verify that the tax has been paid by Marlin.

  • Each taxing jurisdiction has a different lien date or fiscal start date for the year. There are 5 different lien dates used by jurisdictions: January 1st, March 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st. Marlin is required to report leased equipment owned on the jurisdiction’s lien date to the taxing authorities. The full tax for the equipment is incurred on the lien date. The tax is due even if the lessee business closes or the property is purchased, sold or transferred before the end of the year. For example, if in a January 1st taxing jurisdiction, a lessee pays off the lease on January 5th and sells the equipment, the taxing authority will still assess taxes for the full 2009 year. Under this example, these taxes would be due in 2010.

  • Under the terms of the lease, a lessee is reimbursing Marlin for property taxes paid on the lessee’s behalf. Many states consider this reimbursement as a taxable gross receipt for sales tax purposes. In these instances, Marlin is required to collect and remit sales tax on this taxable gross receipt.

  • This fee covers Marlin’s cost of filing property tax renditions, corresponding with the taxing authorities and processing the property tax payments. The fee is assessed on leases that incur a property tax liability and is disclosed in the lease documentation.

  • Marlin, as the owner of the leased equipment, is required to report all leased equipment, even if the equipment is leased by lessees in the government, church or non-profit sectors. Since Marlin is not a tax-exempt entity and is the owner of the equipment, the lessee’s tax exemption does not pass to Marlin. The tax assessors of each individual jurisdiction make the determination as to whether or not to assess taxes on the assets.

  • Other companies do charge their customers taxes usually by building the cost into the lease factor rate. Marlin does not build property taxes into its lease rates. Instead, Marlin breaks out the taxes as a separate line item on the lease invoice so that the lease payment is easier to understand.

  • Each jurisdiction that collects personal property taxes, taxes the owner of the equipment. Marlin is the legal owner of the equipment under the lease agreement. Under the terms of the lease agreement, the lessee agreed to reimburse Marlin for any such taxes paid on the leased equipment.

  • The property tax true-up is the reconciliation of actual property taxes paid by Marlin on the leased equipment against the tax estimate the lessee was billed by Marlin for a given tax year.

     

    Most state and local jurisdictions’ in the United States have laws that require Marlin to report leased personal property and pay taxes on this leased equipment annually. Marlin will estimate the annual tax cost and then invoice the lessee that estimated amount at the start of every year that the lease is active.

     

    In some cases, the actual taxes charged by the taxing jurisdiction(s) (city, county or state) are different from the estimated amount billed by Marlin. If the actual taxes are less than the estimate the lessee will receive a credit or refund. If the actual taxes are higher than the estimate, the lessee is billed the difference.

  • A true-up is when Marlin reconciles the estimated taxes paid by the lessee to the actual tax billed by the tax jurisdiction. If the lessee overpaid the taxes, they will receive a credit, via check or credit to rental due. If the lessee underpaid, Marlin will invoice the difference. This is a standard practice with leasing companies.

  • Marlin is the legal owner of the equipment you lease. Marlin is required by law to pay business personal property taxes on an annual basis to the taxing authorities in the jurisdiction where the leased equipment is located. Under the terms of the lease agreement, you (the lessee) agreed to reimburse Marlin for any such taxes paid on the leased equipment.

     

    Marlin calculates the anticipated tax liability of the leased equipment and invoices the lessee this estimate on an annual basis. Once Marlin receives the actual property tax bill from the lessee’s taxing jurisdiction(s), Marlin reconciles the estimate paid by the lessee against the actual taxes paid by Marlin to the taxing jurisdiction. This property tax reconciliation results in a refund or credit, if the estimate paid Marlin is higher than the actual tax Marlin paid to the taxing jurisdiction. Conversely, the lessee will be billed the difference if the estimate was lower than the actual taxes paid by Marlin to the taxing jurisdiction. 

  • Your contract may require you have insurance that protects the equipment against all risks of loss. There are two options available to you:

     

    Option 1

    You can cover the equipment under an existing commercial policy. If you are required to have your equipment insured, you will receive a letter from our Insurance Service Center that will explain your options in more detail.

    Option 2

    In the event we do not receive evidence of other insurance, we will secure coverage for our interest in the equipment and bill you a fee for such coverage.  We will be the beneficiary of this coverage and will be the insured party under a master insurance policy.

     

    This is a general overview. For complete details, please contact our Insurance Department at 877-733-4433.

  • We want to be sure your invoice is easily understood. Below you will find some of the terms on your invoice and their definition.

    Contract Payment

    This is the regular monthly/quarterly/annual payment amount, according to your contract.

    One-time Documentation Fee

    Marlin does not charge an application fee. We may charge a fee to compensate us for processing the documents and reimburse us for the fees incurred with filing UCC-1 financing statements. When applicable by law, taxes may be applied to this fee.

    Interim Rent (Partial Month Payment)

    After we confirm that the equipment has been delivered and we’ve received all of the required documents, your equipment supplier is paid. We then set up the contract on our billing system and an invoice is sent to you for the first payment due. This payment covers the following full 30-day period. Included on the first invoice is a charge for interim rent, which covers the period between when we pay your vendor and when the first lease payment is due. When applicable by law, taxes may be applied to this fee.

    Sales/Use Tax

    In most states and some local jurisdictions, we are required to collect sales/use tax on each monthly payment. Since the lease payment was calculated in advance and tax rates can change periodically, this amount is billed separately. In certain states, the full amount of tax is due at the inception of the lease. In these situations, the tax is added to the equipment cost to calculate the monthly payment. When applicable by law, taxes may be applied to late charges, one-time documentation fees, insurance, property tax and interim rent. Other taxes you may be subject to are CA E-Waste, Chicago Use Tax, FL Doc Stamp and TN Single Article. If you believe that you are exempt from sales/use tax, please email an exemption certificate to Customer Care.

    Property Tax

    Many local jurisdictions assess an annual tax on tangible personal property. The lessor, as owner of the equipment, pays this tax to the appropriate taxing authority. (Our lease rate does not include this tax.) We pass this tax on to you on an annual basis. Again, these taxes change periodically and are not included in the calculation for the base monthly payment. We may bill you our estimate of the taxes and reconcile your account when the actual tax figures are received from the applicable jurisdiction. The billed amount may also include an annual property tax administration fee of up to $25. When applicable by law, taxes may be applied to this fee.

    • If the equipment location is in California and you have a $1.00 purchase option lease, your property tax jurisdiction will bill you directly.
    • If the equipment is in Tennessee, your property tax jurisdiction will bill you directly.
    • If your local property tax jurisdiction in California or Tennessee bills you directly, you will not be billed an estimate from Marlin.
    • If the equipment is located in the following states, no property tax will be assessed and you can disregard this notice: Delaware, Iowa, New Jersey, Ohio, Hawaii, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New Hampshire, North Dakota and South Dakota.
    • We ask that if you have other business equipment to report to your local jurisdiction that you please list the Marlin lease information in the “leased from” section of the property tax report. This will help avoid double assessment of property tax.
    • If you believe that you are exempt from property tax, please understand that the tax assessment applies to Marlin and your exemption will generally not apply to the property taxes assessed to Marlin.

    Review the Property Taxes FAQs in our Help Center for more information.

    Late Charge

    If we receive your payment after the due date on the invoice, you may be assessed a late charge. The amount is calculated as a percentage of the invoice amount past due, less taxes, or may be a flat charge, depending on the terms of the contract you signed. You will receive a one-time waiver of the first late charge assessed if you call customer service at the number on the reverse side of your invoice and request it.

    Returned Check Fee

    If your payment is returned from your bank for any reason, we may charge you a fee.
