In most states, you're not paying tax on the residual so there really isn't a tax incentive to trade in vs simple lease turn in.

If your trade in value is above the residual/buyout then you can capture some equity, but this doesn't happen very often with BMW since they tend to lease rather aggressively.
That makes sense. I know in Texas it's the same for lease/finance/etc where the tax incentive is the difference in price basically.
BMW family... for now.
