The tax ends on March 1 for car buyers, and a new 'title tax' takes effect.
Although other counties may be making special preparations, Gwinnett County tax officials say they are prepared for the coming tax change on auto sales. "We don't think we'll have a big problem" handling the routine of the new "title tax" that takes effect March 1, said Paula Martin of the Gwinnett tax commissioners office. On that date, the annual "birthday tax" expires for state vehicle owners who purchase a new vehicle.

Will it change your car buying decision? Share your thoughts in the comments below…

Ask most financially-savvy consumers, and they will tell you that buying a used vehicle, as opposed to a new one, is a wiser financial decision. But in today’s automotive environment, that may not be the case.
The total cost to own a car is generally at the forefront of the thoughts of many financially-savvy consumers. This cost includes not just the monthly payment, but car insurance, the cost of gas, repairs, maintenance and depreciation. In the past, conventional wisdom has stated that buying a used car is always the most frugal option. But with rising prices in the auto resale market, much more fuel efficient new cars, and better warranties, you may be better off buying a new car instead.
