Georgia – Online Sales Tax Goes Into Effect Today (January 1, 2019)

Hope you’ve already spent those holiday gift cards.

Georgians who shop online can expect to pay a little more on some purchases this year after a bill signed by Gov. Nathan Deal goes into effect today.

Georgia House Bill 61 requires online retailers that make at least 200 sales a year or $250,000 in annual gross revenue from online sales to start paying Georgia’s sales tax when shipping their products into the state.

Affected retailers could choose to collect the taxes and send them to the state, or send customers who spend more than $500 in a given year a sales and use tax statement. Statements of how much taxes customers’ owe would also have to be sent to the state.
