Effective July 1, 2012, with the passage of House Bill 872 during the 2012 session of the Georgia General Assembly, any business operating as a scrap metal processor, secondary metals recycler, or used motor vehicle parts dealer, must report certain motor vehicle title cancellation and National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) information to the Georgia Department of Revenue.

The law also requires the Department to provide an electronic reporting method for salvage dealers to meet those state and federal reporting requirements. In a July 2, 2012 Information Bulletin regarding the new law, the Georgia DOR announced they were authorizing Auto Data Direct, Inc.(ADD), to provide the reporting service on their behalf.
"We have provided NMVTIS reporting services to the junk, salvage, and insurance industries since the federal requirement went into effect in 2009," said Jim Taylor, President of Auto Data Direct. "Our technical staff was able to respond to Georgia's additional requirements. We are very pleased that our company can assist this jurisdiction and provide the industry with an easy to use solution to comply with the new law."
In their July 2nd Information Bulletin, the Georgia DOR directed salvage dealers to Auto Data Direct's website to set up an account and begin the new reporting requirements. ADD has set up a page specifically for the Georgia dealers which provides detailed information on the new law and walks them through the set-up and reporting process.
DOR's Information Bulletin can be found here.
