Individuals in the agriculture industry who sell at least $2,500 of their crop during a calendar year are eligible for a state card which, when presented, allows them to receive a sales tax exemption on equipment and products.
Farmers and those involved in agribusiness learned about the various sales tax exemptions in agriculture during a March 5 informational session on GATE, the Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption program. They attended to learn how to obtain the state issued tax exemption card.
“You can only receive sales tax exemptions on inputs directly used in the activities for which you qualify,” said Jack Spruill of the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
