Georgia Law requires that all auto tags be renewed within 30 days before owner’s birthdate. Renewals after the deadlines are subject to a 10% penalty on the ad valorem tax due and a 25% penalty on the tag fee.
Except new residents and owners of recently acquired vehicles, all vehicle owners should receive a prebill in the mail before their renewal period.
All new residents who have obtained Georgia license plates during the current year should receive a renewal prebill the following year to renew the tag and pay the ad valorem taxes. If you do not receive your renewal prebill 30 days before your birthday, call (706) 821-2476 and a prebill will be mailed to you.
