GATE Changes Coming Soon


GATE logo

Holders of the GATE card (GA Agricultural Tax Exemption Program) will notice changes to the program as this year's renewal date approaches. House Bill 886, carried by Representative Sam Watson in this year's General Assembly, sought to strengthen the program to insure its viability for the future.

 

The most significant changes include:

  • The move to a three year card as opposed to yearly renewal.
  • The income threshold for agricultural revenues has been raised to $2,500 annually from $500.
  • All renewals will now be done electronically. Farm Bureau and Cooperative Extension offices will assist those without internet access.
  • A plastic, wallet size card will now be issued along with key fobs.

The Department of Agriculture will soon begin mailing cardholders additional information regarding these changes. Click here for more information.
