Sales tax on a motor vehicle is due:
- When purchased from a new or used vehicle dealership or business
- When vehicle purchase is made from an out-of-state dealer
- At the time of, or prior to, titling or registering the vehicle
For more information, please call 912-576-3248.
Some states have a reciprocal agreement with other states to determine what portion of the sales and use tax will be credited to the sales tax that is due in Georgia. (i.e., Vehicle purchased in FL, dealer collects four percent, additional two percent will be paid to the State of Georgia).
Time of Registration
You will need to show proof of tax paid at the initial registration. The sales tax may be paid at the same time as the initial registration.
