What is TAVT?
TAVT is the title tax due on vehicle purchased on or after March 1, 2013. This tax replaces the annual motor vehicle ad valorem tax and the sales tax that is collected by dealers on motor vehicle sales for new purchases. House Bill 386 was passed by the 2012 General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal eliminating what everyone so fondly referred to as the “Birthday Tax”. TAVT affects newly purchased vehicles and is due each time a titled vehicle is transferred to a new owner.
