Title Ad Valorem Tax Calculator
Vehicles purchased on or after March 1, 2013 and titled in this state will be exempt from sales and use tax and the annual ad valorem tax. Instead, these vehicles will be subject to a new, one-time title ad valorem tax that is based on the value of the vehicle.
In addition, if you purchase and title a vehicle between January 1, 2012 and March 1, 2013, you may be eligible to opt-in to the new title ad valorem tax.
Two calculators are provided to help you understand how the new title ad valorem tax applies to vehicles purchased during 2012 and beyond. These calculators provide estimates based on information you provide and may be slightly different when your transaction is finalized by your county tag office.
Calculates an estimate of the new title ad valorem tax that will apply to all vehicles purchased
in Georgia beginning March 1, 2013.
Provides a comparison between the current annual ad valorem tax and the new one-time title ad valorem tax. This comparison can be used to view an estimate of opt-in credit you may receive for sales tax and ad valorem taxes paid on a vehicle purchased between January 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013. If you decide to opt-in to the title ad valorem tax, you must do so before March 1, 2014.
There are some situations that do not fall under the calculations in either of these options – such as new
residents moving into Georgia, salvage titles, untitled vehicles, trailers, etc. For more information on
these types of vehicles,
