      I just moved to GA and have to pay $1600 in taxes on two vehicles I already own. Moving here is enough of expense, then this tax on top of it.

      The financial burden for the individual. The fact that the valuation by the state is usually higher than the actual value, especially with commercial vehicles. I paid $2500 for a truck and the title was to cost me $700. Ridiculous. It is not being made clear to people that purchase from a dealership that now, when the dealer processes your title, you are now paying interest on this money through the financing of the vehicle. Ridiculous! I read the AJC article in January...mentioned several times how this bill should "steer people to purchase from dealerships"...well, I am not a cow to be steered by an enormous, hungry government body that has an insatiable appetite for money....mine! This also is another attempt to rob us of our right to free trade among individuals through the taxation of private sales. The fact that if the fee is charged EVERYTIME the vehicle changes ownership is totally unfair taxation process. Just another of the governments "let them eat cake" attitude.

      I recently purchased a 2006 Chevy Uplander van with 174,000 miles for my mother who is disabled to get around in to the doctor, grocery store, etc. The van cost $3200 and was purchased from an individual. The tax commish office wants her to pay $460 for the tag and title transfer. They claim that according to Georgia the van is worth $6500!! I checked KBB and NADA and at most the van is worth only $4200. Even the seller told me that he took the van to a car dealership and they only offered him $3000 for it and that was only on trade for a new vehicle! This law is as much wrong as the death tax! How can they demand another sales tax(which is what it really is) on something that was taxed originally when it was bought new? Is this sorry government going to tax us multiple times on every purchase we make? What's next, sending Dept of Revenue agents around to Flea markets and yard/garage sales? This is ridiculous!!!
