Coronavirus impacts: Georgia tag renewal deadlines extended

GEORGIA — Attention, Georgia drivers.

Vehicle registrations that expire between March 16, 2020 and May 14, 2020 are being extended through May 15, 2020.

“This extension applies to all annual registrations, including personal passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, vehicles registered in the International Registration Plan (IRP), and Temporary Operating Permits (TOPs) issued at the time of a vehicle purchase. Registrations that expired before March 16, 2020, do not qualify for this extension,” the Department of Revenue said in a statement.

DOR says its top priority is keeping Georgians safe right now so they are limiting unnecessary in-person contact at tag offices.

“In accordance with state law, the Revenue Commissioner may extend both the tax and tag deadlines since there has been a presidentially declared disaster,” the DOR said.

This is one of several extensions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
