Georgia State University’s Fiscal Research Center TAVT Report

The Georgia State University’s Fiscal Research Center issued a report analyzing the Title Ad Valorem Tax (TAVT) from its inception in 2013 through 2016. The report details the overall impact on local governments and the State of Georgia. This is the first independent analysis of the TAVT system since its inception. The study includes an overview of how the system works. Consistent with ACCG’s prior analysis, the Fiscal Research Center report finds that the state has fared well under the TAVT system while most local governments have suffered a decline in revenues from the taxation on motor vehicles.
