The company their lease the vehicle is referred as lessee and the leasing company are referred as leaser. Both the name of the lessee and leaser are mentioned on the insurance contract. But, on the vehicle title the leaser name is only mentioned and this is the reason why the lessee solely pays the taxes on monthly lease payments instead of paying the entire purchasing price of the car. The lessee only rents the car and pay the taxes for the time frame they are using the vehicle.
