Welcome to GATE

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. Qualified farmers and agricultural producers can apply to receive a certificate showing that they are eligible for this exemption.

The application and renewal system for 2019 GATE cards is now available online. Current cardholders will need a password to renew. Letters with this password have been sent by postal mail and email to current cardholders. Fees for all 2019 cards must be paid online by credit card or e-check. The Georgia Department of Agriculture will no longer accept checks as payment for GATE card fees.

Please note that the GATE rules and qualifications have changed for 2019. View the GATE Program Flyer to see information on these changes.
