    I just bought my own truck, first one. Titled it in Georgia. However, I’m wanting to register it with the company I’m leased to which is out of Ohio. Registration was rejected because Georgia won’t release the title because I haven’t registered with them. I’ve explained my intentions to Ga IRP division and even called. I’ve asked other owner operator friends, called companies that do registration paperwork for you and no one knows what to do. So here I am. Anyone had this problem?

    Are you a Georgia resident? Just switch the title to your name. You don't even deal with their IRP since you're not registering it there.

    They need to give you your title if you are the legal owner. The registration is irrelevant since you can own the truck but never put it on the road. When it comes to IRP, you can leave the title in any state really when you're leased.

    For IRP you'll need to list the Carrier's details as the MC responsible for safety to get plates. The application will ask for information your Carrier will have to provide you.

    I'd recommend getting an IFTA account setup in your name while you're at it too so your Carrier doesn't rip you off.

    It could be like in TN, unless you have a dealer’s license they won’t give you a title without buying a tag.
    What I’ve done in the past is just get the cheapest plate they offer, and then get the plate you actually need. I have bought regular auto tags for class 8 vehicles, just to get a title.

    I did the same. Bought the Truck in Ga. at a Chrysler used car lot. Sellers brother was the Manager, handled the closing, including Chrysler Financial financing. Left with a 30 day temp paper auto plate. Even hauled a couple loads to get home. Luckily I didn’t get caught. Desperate times, Lol. Got IRP plate using temp Title/plate closing papers. Like most Dealers they operate as an extension of the States operations. Didn’t get the actual Title for a couple months. Like others said, get the 30 day temp, use paperwork as temporary Title.

    You are not going to get your own plates, you want the company's plates. The company that you are leasing to should have all the necessary paperwork to complete the process.

    That's insane. Never knew that. Seems kind of shady to force someone to buy something they don't need.

    I appreciate the replies. I am a resident of Georgia. I’ve decided to cut through the red tape and just register and tag it in my home state. I was trying to avoid a lump sum payment on the tags. If I tagged through the company I’m leased to they would deduct so much a week until it was paid for. However, I am prepared to cough it up just preferred not to.

    You're better off that way. You'll know 100 percent what they will cost you every year and you’ll be able to get your own IFTA account too. If you don't have these, the Carrier can really overcharge you and you'd be none the wiser.

    I think as a truck owner you should tag it yourself. The reason being, if you do not like the company you are working for you can leave whenever you want. If you pay for a tag through that company and decide to leave they own the tag that you paid for until the year is up. They can reassign it to another trucker and charge him for it. Essentially, making a profit off of you. They will not return the money you paid into the tag.

    Also, GA requires you to pay the ad valorem before they will give you a tag. So maybe this is the hang up. here is the link explaining the ad valorem

    Title Ad Valorem Tax (TAVT) <-- Link
    The current TAVT rate is 6.6% of the fair market value of the vehicle.

    Title Ad Valorem Tax (TAVT) became effective on March 1, 2013. TAVT is a one-time tax that is paid at the time the vehicle is titled. It replaced sales tax and annual ad valorem tax (annual motor vehicle tax) and is paid every time vehicle ownership is transferred or a new resident registers the vehicle in Georgia for the first time.
