Floyd County Tax Commissioner Kevin Payne is reminding citizens of Floyd County that if you bought a motor vehicle on or after January 1, 2012 and prior to March 1, 2013, you have an opportunity to opt in to the new Title Ad Valorem Tax System. This option will expire at the close of business on February 28, 2014. According to a release from Payne’s office, the opt-in period provides consumers an opportunity to do a comparison between the current annual ad valorem (or birthday) tax and the new, one-time title tax. Tax payers may be eligible to opt in to the new tax and get credit for sales tax and annual ad valorem taxes they have already paid.
