ASA-GA and GCIA Intend to Defeat Georgia House Bill 385

Legislation has been proposed in the Georgia House of Representatives that would create a sales tax on many services of small businesses. The bill, House Bill 385, if passed, would create a new sales tax on the labor costs on services performed by automotive repair facilities.

ASA and the Georgia Collision Industry Association (GCIA) oppose the proposed automotive repair tax, and call on the association's Georgia members to contact their respective representatives in opposition to the legislation.
