Annual Ad Valorem Taxes - Vehicles Purchased prior to March 1, 2013

If you purchased a vehicle prior to March 1, 2013 then you WILL be in the Annual Ad Valorem Tax law. This tax law (Annual Ad Valorem Tax) is calculated by the vehicle values set by the Georgia Department of Motor Vehicle Division and multiplied by the mill rate set by the governing authorities (state, school, county, water authority). If your registration is paid after your birthday(due date) then you are responsible for all applicable late fees which are 25% of the tag fee and 10% of the ad valorem tax fee or $5, whichever is greater.
