What is the new 2018 Georgia Lease Tax?

When you lease a new car from us, you'll only be asked to pay taxes on the sum of your lease payments, not the total value of your car. You can pay this tax up front or throughout the course of your lease. This one-time tax, known as TAVT, will cover the sales tax on down payments, the sales tax on monthly lease payments and the annual ad valorem property tax that drivers were forced to pay under the old law.* And as a result, the amount due at signing will be thousands of dollars less when you lease a Chevy at our Georgia Chevrolet dealership.

What is TAVT?

TAVT, or Title Ad Valorem Tax, applies to all new car sales and leases, as well as used car sales, and it can be either paid up front or at a rate of 7% throughout the terms of your lease. But, this rate won't increase in 2018, and the TAVT will now be calculated based on the sum of your lease payments instead of the total value of your car.
