The Tax Commissioner is responsible for the registration of motor vehicles and the collection of all registration fees, taxes and penalties specified by Georgia Law. Title Ad valorem taxes or Ad Valorem taxes, if due, are collected when the vehicle is registered.
All motor vehicles 1986 and newer must be titled (not applicable to trailers weighing less than 2000 lbs.)
Vehicles purchased from an individual or business (not a dealership) must be registered within 7 days of the purchase date.
Vehicles purchased from a dealership or individual must be registered within 30 days of the purchase date or late fees and penalties will apply.
Individuals moving to Georgia have 30 calendar days after establishing their residency to register their vehicles. However, if your out-of-state registration is not current, you should come to the Oglethorpe County Tag office as soon as possible.
