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 new program created by Georgia House Bill 386, which offers
qualified agriculture producers a sales tax exemption on agricultural equipment
and production inputs. The program will replace the Agricultural Certification of
Exemption (ST-A1) form, effective January 1, 2013. Registration available
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).
