Does Avalara File Georgia Food Tax?


Customers who make certain food sales in the state of Georgia are subject to local tax but can be exempt from paying state tax. Does Avalara support calculating and reporting these taxes?


Avalara Returns



  • As long as you are using the correct tax code in your Georgia transactions, AvaTax will make eligible food sales taxable at the local level and non-taxable at the state level.
  • However, since our filing automation does not currently break out deductions, if you would like Avalara to file a Georgia return on your behalf with food sales, please follow the instructions listed here.
