Use tax is tax imposed on non-exempt items brought into Georgia. “Use tax” is also a term commonly used to refer to the tax imposed on taxable goods and services that were not taxed at the point of sale.
You paid the sales tax when you purchased the boat. You would not have use tax to pay in GA on the boat.
You know in GA we do not title boats but you will pay when you register with DNR. Those fees are still based on length.
Yes your county will send you the form for boats that you have in Jan. That is a tangible tax on property for your county.
You do not have use tax to pay. The trailer (if you have one) of course will need to be titled and tag received so you will pay then at your courthouse or tag office.
I hope this is helpful.
