Georgia Auto Repair Tax Bill Still Alive - BodyShop Business

Georgia Auto Repair Tax Bill Still Alive

Georgia H.B. 388, which aims to create a sales tax on services of many small businesses, is still alive in the Georgia Legislature.

The bill would place additional tax burdens on automotive maintenance, repair, auto body repair, equipment installation services, brake repair, oil changes, motor tune-ups, and engine repair and replacement, among others, according to the Automotive Service Association (ASA).

ASA says the bill would be "devastating" to the automotive repair industry and opposes the legislation.

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, according to ASA.

The association is asking Georgia repairers and consumers to contact their respective representatives and express their opposition to the legislation.
