Yes, if you take delivery of an item in another state the merchant there MUST collect sales tax there. If the merchant ships it to you out of state via 'common carrier' the merchant does not have an obligation to collect Georgia sales tax, but YOU have the burden to pay the USE tax and you will pay the use tax when you go to register the car.
