Between 30-60 days prior to your birthday (expiration date), a tag renewal notice will be mailed to you from Atlanta showing the amount of tag fees and ad valorem taxes due on your vehicle. In order to receive your new tag or decal, you must fill out the appropriate information and sign the renewal notice.
Late penalties are 10% of the ad valorem tax or $5.00, whichever is greater, plus 25% of the tag fee. Late penalties begin the next business day after your birthday/expiration date. To avoid having the payment returned, please include your GADL number and current telephone number with your renewal.
NOT RECEIVING A RENEWAL NOTICE DOES NOT RELIEVE THE TAXPAYER FROM THE OBLIGATION TO PAY TAXES BEFORE THE RENEWAL DEADLINE. VEHICLE REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT OF TAXES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TAXPAYER.
If an annual renewal notice is not received, please call 912-764-6285 with your license plate number, VIN number, etc. and we can mail you a duplicate renewal notice.
