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 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).
