People who bought new cars between January 2012 and March 2013 have a few days left to escape the birthday tax.  

Those folks can opt-in for the Title Ad Valorem tax.  The option allows owners to pay a one-time tax on their vehicle.  After that, Owners will only need to spend about 20-bucks when renewing their license plates every year.

"Well it's an individual choice because some people, as I said, for income tax purposes will deduct that ad valorem tax and those that...if it does not matter to you about that then it is a great opportunity," said Shonna Colley, Tax Director. 

The Title Ad Valorem tax is now the only option on vehicles bought after March of last year.  The deadline for those other car buyers to opt-in is this Friday.
