Motor Vehicle Ad Valorem Tax

The Georgia Department of Revenue produces an estimate of value, which is required for use in determining the amount of ad valorem or “title tax” you owe. The ad valorem tax is 7 percent of the state’s determined value. If you disagree with the value, you must appeal to the Board of Assessors no later than 45 days from the payment of your ad valorem tax.

Please use the state’s PT311A-MV appeal 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 this vehicle was recently purchased, please include the purchase price on the appeal form or provide a copy of the bill of sale.

Submitting your motor vehicle appeal information: The appeal package may be mailed to Gwinnett County Tax Assessor at 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville, GA 30046, emailed to motorvehicleappraiser@gwinnettcounty.com, or delivered in-person to the Assessor’s Office. You may also schedule a visit to our location for a physical inspection. For more information, please call 770.822.7288.
