Rockdale County residents are invited to the first in a series of “Tax Commissioner Talks” with RJ Hadley, Rockdale Tax Commissioner. The series kicks off with a discussion on changes to the annual vehicle ad valorem tax in Georgia on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Rockdale County Government Annex, 1400 Parker Road. 

House Bill 386, which was passed by the 2012 General Assembly and goes into effect March 1, calls for a new taxation method for motor vehicles purchased and titled in Georgia. 

Vehicles purchased and titled on or after March 1 in Georgia will be exempt from sales and use tax and the annual ad valorem tax, also known as the “birthday tax,” and replaced by a new one-time ad valorem title tax based on the value of the vehicle. 

“Tax Commissioner Talks” will be held monthly and the meetings are open to the public. The next talk in the series will focus on Homestead Exemption with Board of Assessor’s Director Lamar Sims and is set for Tuesday, Feb. 26, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at J.P. Carr Services Community Room, 981 Taylor Street.
