The Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) Title Ad Valorem Tax Calculator

Website: http://onlinemvd.dor.ga.gov/Tap/welcome.aspx

Title Ad Valorem Tax

• All vehicles purchased (from a dealer or private sale) on March 1, 2013 or after, will now pay a one-time state and local Title Ad Valorem Tax at 6.5%.
• Owners must continue to pay an annual ad-valorem tax or "Birthday Tax" for cars purchased prior to January 1, 2012
• Car owners are eligible for a one-time opt-in payment alternative for cars purchased in January 1, 2012 through March 1, 2013.

Additional Changes
• Vehicles from another state to Georgia will be subject to the title ad valorem tax in two installment payments.
• Leased vehicles will still be subject to a tax on the monthly lease payment. The dealership will be responsible for paying the title ad valorem tax.
• Vehicles not required to have titles and older than 1985 are only affected by the new system if the owner decides to get at title after March 1, 2013.

Exceptions
• Veterans exempt from annual motor vehicle ad valorem tax will be excused from the title ad valorem tax.
