GATE is an agricultural sales and use tax exemption certificate issued by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The document identifies its user as a qualified farmer or producer who is exempt from sales tax on the inputs used in the production of their commodity.

Walton EMC Natural Gas customers who receive a GATE certificate then send us a copy so we can apply the exemption to their account. We must receive a copy of the new certificate by December 31 for the exemption to continue.

Producers who have never received GATE can also apply and send a certificate copy to Walton EMC Natural Gas. Visit agr.georgia.gov or call 855-FARM TAX for more information, to renew or apply. Mail GATE renewals to: Walton EMC Natural Gas; Attn: Connie Bentley; P.O. Box 260; Monroe, GA 30655.
