You my friend are wrong. If this were true, then this would not be an issue with the state and Miller County. Give the law code that states this repealed law.

NEED TO LOOK AT HOUSE BILL NO 482
ACT NO 132
GAL2010 P674
PASS HOUSE AND SENTATE
GA. VOTERS APPROVED REF A WHICH MAKES BUSINESS INV EXEMPT FROM STATE PROPERTY TAXES. THE EXEMPTION BECOME EFFECTICE JAN 1,2011 AND APPLIES TO ALL TAX YEARS BEGINNING ON OR AFTER THAT DATE.
GA. WAS ONE OF 14 STATES THAT IMPOSED AN INV TAX ON A STATE WIDE LEVEL.
THE PASSAGE OF REF A HAS NO BEARING ON LOCAL INV TAXES
ALSO LOOK AT NFIB FOR SMALL BUSINESS
Sorry Charlie

Yes - this is correct, but it only applies to the inventory. Personal Property is NOT inventory. You see, most businesses do not have to worry, because they are under the 7500.00 dollar value, but some business have over this amount in personal property. Like shelves, machines that are used to make a product, equipment used for that business, computers, desk, furniture and fixtures. I think this is where the confusion is comming from. Most inventory can be considered freeport if it is materials that are in raw form and are used to make a product. Thanks for the information. It is good discussion.

I got clarification on the inventory tax. The law stated in an early post is correct, but taken out of context on that post. The state dropped their .25 percent they get form the inventory tax. It still must be collected for local use. You need to read the full law and ask some questions before saying that it was done away with. Car lots beware....... Looks like its gonna get you. Guess you should have had a year end sale......

iTS GOOD TO SEE SOMEONE DO SOME RESERCH AND KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. TO MANY TIMES PEOPLE SPEAK ABOUT THINGS THEY DONT UNDERSTAND. I BELIEVE THE PRESENT TAX SYSTEM TREATS SOME PEOPLE UNFAIRLY, BUT THAT BEING SAID THE MAJORITY OF US VOTED IT INTO LAW. WHEN EVER YOU SEE A TAX BILL ON THE BALLOT BEWARE NEVER HAVE SO MANY VOTED FOR SOMTHING THAT WILL HELP SO FEW !!!!!!!!!!
