The "new Transportation Impact Fee" should be $100.00 for that vehicle, PLUS the Advaloreum tax which I was assured would be based on the price listed on the Bill of Sale when you bought it from the government, and that is a one time fee....but the "Impact Fee" will continue forward (new fee this year).Some of the reading is very entertaining :0 So when you go get your tag to register it you will need the SF97 from the auction house. You will take that and then apply for a Georgia Title, get a TAG and pay the new road tax based on Weight of the vehicle, take a picture of your data plate with you. In addition you will pay the new one time advaloreum tax based on the fair market value of the vehicle. That is not in the system so it will be interesting how they value this. I have not registered my newer vehicles yet so not sure how they are going to get the fair market value. I would take in your invoice from the auction house. Enjoy
As an example of other DMV problems that should not exist... I own a 1946 dump truck. I had no problem registering it. Non 16 digit vin and all.I purchased a 1970 M35A2 on Saturday here in Colorado and had one heck of a fight trying to get it registered and plated at the DMV. At first they refused, then they "made an exception" for me because it already had a clean Colorado Title. They even went as far as telling me even though its plated, insured, and otherwise legal, if I get caught driving it on the street that would be the end of it. I went to the local Police Station and they confirmed otherwise, and even laughed about what I was told at the DMV. Who knows what's going to happen in 5 years when my plates expire, but I'm not ok with the direction things are heading here.
I would not hold your breath while waiting for that to change.As an example of other DMV problems that should not exist... I own a 1946 dump truck. I had no problem registering it. Non 16 digit vin and all.
I guess I was lucky when I bought the M817a1 The registration says manufacturer is US Army, body type M817 ect. I have never been stopped in it.
I think since it is properly registered as what it is I don't get stopped regularly by the police because the DMV mislabeled it as a JEEP.
Since most of the Military vehicle owners in my part of Virginia have gotten to know most of the police dept. Except me. Since they get stopped regularly by the police cars with camera systems. I don't. The camera system reads the tag and displays JEEP. The cop sees that the truck IS NOT A JEEP and stops the truck. I have never heard of any tickets given.
Yet another gross waste of gov't time and money. But the gov't officials don't care about wasting OUR time and money.
And keep in mind there is no such thing as gov't money it is all OUR money they are wasting.
They are supposed to be using it wisely. When are they going to start using it wisely?? I have seen no evidence of wisely yet.
