How have Georgia’s Auto Lease Laws Changed?

Since March 1, 2013, Georgia has a new Title Ad Valorem Tax, also known as the TAVT, which applies to all new car purchases and leases, as well as used car purchases. This tax is paid up-front, or rolled into financing. The TAVT can be 7.0% of the fair market value of the vehicle, as determined by the Georgia Department of Revenue, OR the vehicle selling price — whichever is greater.

As of January 1, 2018, law HB 340, the alternative ad valorem tax has changed. Now, the TAVT on leased vehicles will be calculated based on the total of lease payments, rather than the full value of the vehicle.

What does Georgia’s new Lease Laws Mean for You?

Georgia’s new auto lease laws can mean significant savings for our customers in Hinesville!

Previously, if you bought a $30,000 vehicle, you will be assessed $2,100 in TAVT (7% of the vehicle’s full price). You would either need to pay this tax up front, or built it into your lease — a hefty fee for simply leasing a vehicle! Under the new tax laws, Georgia consumers will only have to pay $1,050 in taxes for leasing their vehicle – a savings of 50%! This is making it much more affordable for Georgia car shoppers to lease a car, truck, or SUV with Liberty Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram!
