NEW GEORGIA TAXES

Postby BUBBACAYMAN » Mon May 06, 2013 11:11 pm



Well went and registered the new to me 1993 GL1500 trike today in Forsyth County GA.
Thankfully I had done my homework on the new AD Valorum (Title Tax), so went with a
bill of sale with a really low price. WHY you ask,, as of March 1, 2013, when you go to
register your new to you or brand new motor vehicle, the State Charges you 6.5 % of the
value.

New $38,000 goldwing owners have to cough up $2,740.00 on top of the tag fees.

So fellow Georgians, be very aware of what your tags will cost the first time around.

You said on top of the normal tag fee's right? Boy this is Highway robbery :shock: ...We all have to spend far too much money just to drive or ride anymore...That electric bike this guy rides around the neighborhood is starting to look really good to me...Hey he comes flying around the corner street doing about 30 mph on that thing...Talk about cool..No gas.. :shock:

Isn't that just the sales tax on each owner? If you purchased at a dealership and paid tax, would that not mean it was already paid, and only the licence fees were due? Or is this over and above the sales tax paid at purchase. Here where I live, no matter how many times a vehicle is sold, the sales tax is due each time the vehicle is purchased. The MTO (DMV) collects the tax in addition to the licence fees. And yes, Little Beaver, this is a money grab. One vehicle that sells five times is taxed five times at slightly lower levels as it depreciates. If it sold at $30K new, the tax would be $3900, second sale, say $20K = $2600, third sale, say $15K = $1950, 4th at $10K = $1300, 5th at $5k= $650 for a total lifetime tax on a vehicle of $10,400. Yeah, this would definitely constitute a government money grab.

We have to pay 7% State sales tax and a city tax of 1.5% on vehicles purchased in Nebraska! After the initial shock, you only have the tag fee's. My 98 SE's tags this year were a whopping 15 Bucks.... 8-)

"Any motor vehicle purchased on or after March 1, 2013 and titled in Georgia will
be exempt from sales and use tax and the annual ad valorem tax, also known as the “birthday
tax”. These taxes will be replaced by a one-time tax called the title ad valorem tax fee
(“TAVT”)."

Sounds like a replacement for the sales tax. If they're replacing an annual tax with a one time tax, that sounds like a good thing.

It is a one time tax, FOR EVERY NEW OWNER OF THE SAME VEHICLE, as Viking pointed out, In GA, there was no Sales Tax collected when an individual sold his vehicle to another individual. Now they get you when you go to buy your tag. 6.5 % so yesterday I paid $198.88 instead of the $47.36 that the previous owner paid last year. They also charge for a Title Fee, to change the title names, a Tag Fee for the piece of metal, processing fee and if you mail it in $1.00 for mail fee. 8-)

They've done the same thing in Ontario for years - people would always go in with bills of sale with lowball amounts to get around it. So tax-happy Ontario changed the rules, you pay tax on the amount on the bill of sale, or the Blue Book value, whichever is more.

Well, how much was the sale tax they were paying before? It won't be a new tax for them, as people didn't buy $38,000 Goldwings from private sellers.

Seems to me this in only closing the loophole, used vehicle buyers at a dealership paying sales tax, and private buyers not.

Yeah, although I think it is a money grab, and I feel bad for you, it is common in government cash poor places. Welcome to the era of the tax grab. Georgia is probably as needy as Ontario, Canada. Up here we have way too many people in Ontario for the amount of people working and paying taxes, so everything is taxed to death. We have to provide food, lodgings and entertainment to illegal immigrants living on our welfare systems. When I was working, I felt I was supporting my family, plus two others. Now I am retired, it is just my family and one other. But I make less money, so I have not gotten ahead. I have to give up cordon bleu and filet mignon, and eat chicken and New York strip steaks, so that other family - WHO I DO NOT EVEN KNOW - can eat the cordon bleu and filet mignon. Overall, Canada is the second highest taxed country in the world just behind Australia, and ultimately, as people in BC and Alberta do not pay hardly any taxes, Ontario is probably the highest taxed place to live in the world. Everything we buy aside from food and a few sundries is taxed at 13%. So every thousand dollars spent adds up to $1130.00. Yup, I hate taxes too. If my family did not like Ontario so much, I would be living in Alberta. Or maybe in Todd's house in B.C. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Did you say you would move in with Mr. Todd in BC..??? ha ha ha Based on the prizes of insurance for your bikes up that way I would about die I think...I think too many people bought nice things for a dollar and the State got fed up with that BS, because that ain't right either...So the States got wise..

Heck yeah. He would not mind, I am sure (do ya think?) And yes, our insurance prices are pretty high as compared to yours. My bike alone, full coverage, is $1100.00 a year, and I have never in my life had an at fault accident. My truck and my wife's car together (and again, full coverage) only cost the same as the one motorcycle. I guess up here the expression "if you want to play, you got to pay" has even more meaning than other places, Hawwwwwwww, hawww, :lol: :lol:

So, Todd - what say? Can I move west and live in your house??? :mrgreen:
