Georgia auto repair tax bill still alive

Friday, May 20, 2011 - 00:00
Georgia House Bill 388, which aims to create a sales tax on services of many small businesses, is still alive in the Georgia Legislature. The bill, if passed, would be devastating to the automotive service industry, placing additional tax burdens on automotive maintenance, repair, auto body repair, equipment installation services, brake repair, oil changes, motor tuneups, and engine repair and replacement, to name a few.

Despite the fact that no action was taken on Georgia H.B. 388 before the Georgia Legislature adjourned, the legislation could be considered during the special session later this summer.

ASA opposes the proposed automotive repair tax, and calls on Georgia independent automotive repairers and consumers to contact their respective representatives in opposition to the legislation.

To view full text of the bill and send a letter to members of the Georgia state legislature, visit ASA’s legislative website.
