Diane Yetter photoFrom the description of your business, it appears that you could use one of two Georgia exemption certificates for resale. Form "ST-4 Certificate of Exemption - Out of State Dealer" is used by out-of-state dealers purchasing tangible personal property in Georgia for resale in another state. Form "ST-8 - Nonresident Certificate of Exemption Purchase of Motor Vehicle" is issued by the Commissioner for purchasing motor vehicles by nonresidents who qualify for a special exemption. The exemption applies to sales to nonresident purchasers of motor vehicles, provided such vehicles are immediately transported to and used in another state in which such vehicles are required to be registered and supported by a valid Form ST-8. In either case, Georgia Certificates of Exemption are valid until revoked in writing. They do not list an expiration date.
