Georgia one-time Ad Valorem Tax

Georgia now has a one-time Ad Valorem Tax for vehicles purchased after 3/1/2013.  It is based on the value of the vehicle, but it is now paid at the time of purchase in lieu of sales tax.  Is this one-time AVT deductible?

    I searched online. It's a news story, so take it for what it's worth. It says no.

    • Note that it claims that the title tax will not be allowed as a deduction as the AD VALOREM tax was.  That's correct, it's not a personal property tax.

      It didn't say whether or not it is a sales tax.
    • I read the same thing thanks

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
