The Georgia Department of Revenue produces an estimate of value, which is required for use in determining the amount of “title tax” you owe upon the transfer of a vehicle. Effective January 1, 2015, the new title tax increased to 7 percent. If you disagree with the value used, you must appeal to the Board of Assessors within 45 days of the payment of the tax.
Please use the state’s PT311A-MV form to start the process. Submit copies of the registration documents and photos of the vehicle along with the completed appeal form. Photos need to include all four sides, inside, damage (if any), and odometer reading. If the vehicle was recently purchased, please include the purchase price on the appeal form or provide a copy of the bill of sale. The appeal package may be mailed, emailed, or delivered to the Assessors’ Office. You may also schedule a visit to our location for a physical inspection.
