Default Vehicle Property Tax ?

I'm thinking of moving to GA. Is there a vehicle property tax? I keep hearing something about a "birthday tax".
Also are there car inspections or is that just for Atlanta Metro area?

Our auto/tag system has recently changed and as a newcomer you will fall under the new system. When you register your vehicles you will owe a tax of approximately 7% of the current value. You can pay 1/2 at registration and 1/2 12 months later. After that your tag renewal is due on your birthday and is $20 with no additional taxes. If you live in one of the 13 Metro Atlanta counties you have to get an emmisions test before tag renewal.

Here's a link that explains it. http://www.cobbtax.org/vehicles/adValorem

I don't know what state you're currently in but it sounds like you're gonna be taxed twice because you paid sales tax when you bought your vehicle and depending on the type of vehicle you bought you likely paid some sort of federal tax as well, now GA wants to tax you again on the same vehicle you already paid taxes on.

Also sounds like you'll be paying out money on the whole vehicle inspection scam too if you're gonna move to one of the 13 counties that have the scam set-up...if you're vehicle doesn't pass the scam you get to fork more money out of your pocket to have it "fixed"...

Better think about moving to another state unless you like being robbed by government under the threat of not getting a tag...

If you're located in FL you know we don't have that BS, you pay once a year to renew your tag and registration and the cost depends on the weight of your vehicle but its minimal...

Yep. I'm in FL right now, and the vehicle property tax thing is killing me in all these other states I have looked at. I *thought* GA had done away with it.

So from what I gather, I would have to pay the TAVT, once and that's it until I buy a another car. But what about the Annual Ad Valorem tax? And then there's this: "Vehicles may be registered under one of the tax systems, but not both." Which leads me to believe I would not have to pay the Annual Ad Valorem tax because my vehicle would be under the new system, the TAVT "one-time pay" ??

I would not be moving to the Atlanta metro area. I'm looking at North GA. I just wanted a shorter summer and colder winter, but dang all these other states are taxing you to death on the cars you own.

I'm really surprised the double taxation scheme in GA isn't being challenged in court...

We are thinking about moving to TN but I haven't researched their vehicle fees yet but if they are gonna outright steal my money then we won't be moving there...Also have to research their gun laws and some other other things before we decide to move there...I've already told the wife we're not moving to a state that robs your paycheck with state income taxes either so that limits us to 6 states as FL would make 7...

Let me know what you find out in the other states. Feel free to PM.

I'm looking at states without safety, emissions or VIN inspections:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicl..._United_States

States with no vehicle property tax.


States with no individual income tax.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_...ual_income_tax

Pro-gun laws.

Still researching... I don't know if it's worth moving just for cooler weather if these other states are going to tax me to death.

From what I've research so far TN has the emissions scheme in the 6 counties below...

Hamilton
Davidson
Rutherford
Sumner
Williamson
Wilson

http://www.dmv.org/tn-tennessee/smog...ssee-Residents

Looks like each county in TN charges a different amount to register your vehicle...

http://www.dmv.org/tn-tennessee/car-registration.php

They don't appear to have a property tax on vehicles, but I'll have to call the TN DMV to find out for sure...

So one-time (per-purchase) Title tax. (I can live with that)
No vehicle emissions, safety inspection (outside of Atlanta metro areas)
Easy-peasy eye exam for driver's license
Castle Law.

My only other questions are, do I have to file a state income tax if I don't earn anything? Or does my father who ,receives SS and disability benefits?
"For earnings between $0.00 and $750, you'll pay 1.00%"

it is not a double taxation scheme in GA. The state transitioned to a one time fee. If you moved from another state to GA prior to the latest change, you would pay the annual ad valorum by your birthday each year. I believe you can still choose this option if you wish (not 100% certain though). It can be a hefty amount depending on the car and it is based on what the state says the value is, not what you think it might be. Good or bad, the state did this to load the coffers from person to person car sales where no sales tax was being captured. When you buy a vehicle in the state it comes out a better deal because all you pay is the 7% (that includes the sales tax and the ad valorem tax).

just an add on to previous comment. For someone coming in from out of state, I do understand how it would be viewed as double taxation. But it is not because the taxes are from two different states andcould never be challenged because the state of GA didn't collect the sales tax on the first purchase

Well that'll dampen new car sales for sure.
7% of 40k is $2800 bucks.

we have always paid sales tax on any car purchased from a dealer. 7% is the average in the state. It is based on the county of your residence and not the county you purchase in. I believe Fulton Co (city of Atlanta) is 8%. No impact on new car sales. I believe the change has exceeded the states income projection quite handily.

It IS double taxation, why should someone have to pay tax on something they already paid tax on? The vehicle isn't being purchased, it was already purchased...

FL tried the same thing back in the 1990's they were making people that moved from other states pay a $295 "impact" fee and the FL SC found it to be unconstitutional and about 633,000 drivers were eligible for $187 million in refunds on fees paid for out-of-state vehicles registered in Florida from July 1991 to July 1995

The state was also being sued to pay 12% interest on the money as well...
