UPDATE – 4/30/2010 – Georgia’s Senate approves Streamlined Legislation! The bill is now sitting on Governor Perdue’s desk for signature. Georgia, you’re on our minds now 🙂(originlly published 4/1/2010) No, we are not speaking about Grammy Award winning pop sensation Lady GaGa. Rather, we are of course speaking about the State of Georgia (the “Wisdom, Justice and Moderation” state).
Last Friday, Georgia’s House of Representatives passed HB 1221 (introduced 2/18/2010) adopting legislative amendments to allow Georgia to become a full Member State under the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement. This bill has now been introduced to the Georgia Senate and been assigned for consideration by that legislative body’s Finance Committee – we are trying to determine if there is a hearing scheduled, and if so when.
