The Georgia State Sales tax rate is 4%. However, like just about every other state, there are local tax rates that can vary significantly. Georgia’s sales tax and use chart is a useful guide for individual jurisdictions.
The phone number to talk to a representative about your sales tax questions is 877-423-6711.
Add another one to your list, remote sellers. Recently Georgia became yet another state with active Wayfair like Economic Nexus laws. The threshold is 250,000 dollars in gross revenue or 200 transactions. Keep in mind some states have ‘and’ clauses, some states have ‘or’. Georgia is an ‘and’ state so just the 250,000 dollars in sales won’t trigger nexus, you have to have the transaction amount too. The law became effective on January 1, 2019.
