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.

    Don't let this happen! All Dealers' cars are before-tax goods so sales taxes are justified. Private sale cars, on the other hand, are already taxed before. Dealers' argument is just a scam in an effort to increase their profit margin by trashing private sales.

    Has anyone heard of elected officials saying they were cuting medicaid? Has anyone heard elected officals making those who get welfar checks ha to pass a urine or blood test to be able to get checks? I didn't think so, Republicans are just lke democrats, they are watching the votes. I am voting independent from now one. Both parties have turned their back on me thus I turn mine on them.
