Residents should know they cannot register a vehicle, change the title or get a tag until the ad valorem taxes are paid, and knowing whether or not the law applies in individual cases will make the transaction process run more smoothly at the courthouse. Not knowing could result in sticker shock at the tax commissioner’s office when making a transfer.
Same some time and avoid the potential for added confusion. Brush up on the law by visiting the Georgia Department of Revenue website at www.etax.dor.ga.gov. Or, call the Baldwin County Tax Commission office for more details and specific questions.
