Have a question. We are planning to move to St. George, just across the Fl/Ga line outside of Macclenny. We will rent at first but in 2 years plan to buy the property that we are renting now. Can anyone tell me how the taxes work if we live in georgia and work in Florida. I have looked on the internet but can not get a clear answer. I would appreciate any response that could be the decision maker for us. I know that property taxes are cheaper in Georgia. Is it true that your car tags cost about 200 a year in Georgia. Just a few questions I have. Thanks to anyone eho responds

The actual registration fee is only $20. The county charges a property tax annually, called an ad valorem tax, that is based on the assessed value of the vehicle.

Georgia has an income tax. Florida does not but their property taxes are a lot higher and getting insurance is tough. Florida has laws that protect your home in the event of bankruptcy or law suit. It is hard to lose your home in Florida as long as u pay the mortgage. I am not sure how GA and FL rank among the 50 states regarding taxes. The last thing I saw was that GA was close to the middle on the tax issue.

The other poster is correct, it depends on the county you live in and the value of your vehicle as assessed by the State Dept of Revenue. Drive an old car like I do and you pay less than 35 dollars to renew annually. Drive a later model vehicle and you are looking at over a hundred to several hundred a year. Pays to shop for a cheap county. Same on property taxes on a house.

Sorry, I just noted that you plan to work in FL and live in GA. Your question is are you liable for taxes to both states I guess. You will have to report all income on your GA tax return. Fortunately, FL doesn't have the income tax.
