Welcome to GATE

The Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption program (GATE) is an agricultural sales and use tax exemption certificate issued by the Department of Agriculture that identifies its user as a qualified farmer or agricultural producer. The Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption (GATE) is a program created through legislation, which offers qualified agriculture producers a sales tax exemption on agricultural equipment and production inputs. The program replaced the Agricultural Certification of Exemption (ST-A1) form. Registration is available today.

You will be charged a $20 fee for all online applications and a $25 fee for applications requiring assistance (i.e. mail and call center).

Please be sure to tell us when you are renewing other licenses within the department and we will be glad to attach your secure and verifiable documentation from your GATE account for your convenience. For assistance, call the Customer Service Center at 855-FARM TAX (855-327-6829).
