Unlike many other states, the State of Georgia does not grant a blanket exemption from sales and use tax to Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. In order to be exempt from paying tax on goods that are purchased or sold by the organization, the organization or the transaction must fit one of the specific, narrow exceptions laid out in the Georgia Code and the organization must obtain an exemption determination letter from the Georgia Department of Revenue.
