Time to Notify Walton EMC of Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption

The Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption (GATE) card is issued to farmers and producers who are exempt from state sales tax on the inputs used in the production of their commodity.

The GATE program has substantially changed for 2019. To find out what has changed or apply for a GATE card, click here.

Over a three-year phase-in process, cards are now being issued for three-year terms. In 2019, the first year of the phase-in process, one-third of applicants will receive a one-year card, one-third will receive a two-year card, and the remaining one-third will receive a three-year card.

To continue receiving this sales tax exemption from Walton EMC, producers must submit renewed cards to us no later than Dec. 31.

Copies of your renewed GATE card can be mailed, faxed or emailed to the following:
