The Georgia Agricultural Tax Exemption (GATE) is a legislated program that offers qualified agriculture producers certain sales tax exemptions. If you qualify, you can apply for a certificate of eligibility.
The application and system for 2023 GATE cards is now open. Fees for all cards must be paid as part of your online application, by credit card or ACH only. If your GATE certificate has expired you can no longer renew it and will need to apply for a new card.

Refunds and missing cards
You have 45 days after paying for a card to notify GDA if you didn’t receive it. After that, you’ll be charged $30 for a replacement card.
Refunds will only be given for multiple payments on accounts or if a duplicate account has been created. No refunds will be given on a multiple-year GATE card when the farm is sold or is no longer operating.
We’re pleased to partner with the Farmers and Consumers Market Bulletin. The Bulletin is the official source of information for the GATE program, and it includes tips and guidance to ensure the integrity of the program’s goals.
