Will I pay less for car insurance in California once I turn 21?
I'm wondering when I can expect lower rates, because my car insurance is pretty expensive right now as a 19-year-old.
While every car insurance company rates personal factors like age differently, broadly speaking, women can expect to see a decrease in rates at age 21; men can expect to see a decrease at age 25.
In California, companies are also concerned with how long you’ve been licensed without a suspension. You usually need to have been continuously licensed for three years to see any rate decreases.

Is it ethical to negotiate a car price with a dealership based on financing and then pay off the entire loan a month later?
"Is it unethical to negotiate a lower price and then pay for the car in cash to get a massive discount? I've read that you can negotiate a better price on a car if you finance with the dealer. However, I have the cash to pay for the car outright."

Do car dealerships confirm your income with the IRS when you apply for a loan?
I applied for a loan at a car dealership. Now they want me to bring in pay stubs or 1099s. I don't know if this is normal. Will they verify this information with the IRS?
