House Bill 80 (H.B. 80)

Post by rpm750 on Mon Jan 21, 2013 7:21 pm

Wondering if anyone has heard about this. A friend of mine who is also a Hot Rod enthusiasts sent me this today. From reading this it looks like the value of the cars will be assessed using some sort of guide book and the current ad valorem tax would then kick in and the tax calculated based on those two factors. So a nice Splitty's tag in the 10-12k range might cost you as much as your 2009 SUV tag.

This link H.B.80 will carry you to a web page that explains the impact and where you as tax payers can voice your concern. Near the bottom of this page are email addresses and phone numbers to contact Committee members.

Do the insurance adjusters play by the same rules? Our cars are now valuable when they are hit or stolen? Not likely. Time to write some letters and send emails.

Here is a link to a petion to stop this bill. Please sign it.

Subject: Stop Georgia from raising taxes on older vehicles

Hi,

H. B. 80 is unfair taxation that will increase the annual ad valorem tax on pre-1986 vehicles. Many owners are car enthusiasts, often retirees on fixed incomes, with old hobby cars that are mostly driven to car shows or club events, so have little impact on traffic or wear and tear of roads. This proposed ad valorem tax increase is ONLY to Raise Money, not to cover any state costs, and it will affect many people who can least afford the increase. Tell the House Ways and Means Committee to STOP this bill!

That's why I signed a petition to Rep. Alan Powell (GA-29), Rep. Don Parsons (GA-42), and 27 others.

Will you sign this petition? Click here:

Thanks!

You can also keep track of what is going on with this bill here.
http://www.legis.ga.gov/legislation/en-US/Display/20132014/HB/80

It has already been amended once, but I didn't go through it to see what has changed. Older versions of the bill can be found at the very bottom of the page every time a change is made.

Looking at the voting it does not look good going into the senate with that many backing it in the House.
