GA Car Sales Tax Proposal

Lawmakers are considering whether to charge sales tax on cars, boats and airplanes between private individuals.

In South Georgia dealers said the sales tax is now seven percent.

Reports said when a person buys a car from a dealer, he or she has the option of financing the sales tax but that's not the case in a person-to-person deal.

"If the private party seller and the dealer party were all on the same level all paying 7 percent sales tax, that would make them equal and it won't be any advantage," said Car Salesman Jeff Logue.

By adding the sales tax, council members estimate more than 150 million will come rolling in.
