From experience, Florida will only collect 6% sales tax, most counties in Georgia charge more than 6% and you have to pay that extra when you register. I think my county is now at 9% but they may have voted in another 1% lost recently. They seem to do that quite often.

Beautiful Baldwin County, home of the former Capitol city of Georgia currently has a 7 percent tax rate: 4 percent state and 3 percent local.

I guess I was off a little, I just remember having to pay more when I got home than I did in Florida before I could register it. Also had to drive to Macon to pay it them come back to Baldwin County to register. Was a PITA. Things must have changes as when I bought another one in Florida 4 years previously, I didn't have to do that. They took all the taxes when I bought the coach. I really wonder now if it's an Florida / Georgia thing or a dealer thing.

heavy vehicles use more fuel per mile, so they already pay more taxes per mile than lighter vehicles. Just stoopid people electing liars be their representatives. I don't mind fuel taxes, but I hate fuel taxes being used for anything other than the roads that generate them. Usually, these corrupt and immoral legislators just dunp those fuel taxes into the state's general fund and blow it on whatever will line their own pocket.

Wise up people, get rid of these legislators....it's your choice.

Yup - legislaters will dig the economy into a hole and then raise taxes to fill it.

Why do we continue to vote for them? Because the choice is the same.

There is a stoy about monkeys. Put 6 monkees in a cage and put a banana at the top of rope in the center. When a monkey goes after the banana hose all of them down with cold water. After two or three monkeys try it they will stop because they know they will get hosed. Put a new monkey in the cage, when it goes for the banana hose them all down again. Then replace one of the monkeys. When the new monkey starts for the banana the rest will beat the stuffings out of him. No water required.

We need to clean them all out every once in a while cause the old ones are teaching the new ones how to take advantage of the system.
