The 2017 Georgia Code GA Code 48-8-63 defines a nonresident subcontractor as a person who does not have a bonafide place of business in Georgia through the maintaining of a permanent domicile or business facility engaged in contracting real property work and who contracts with a prime or general contractor to perform all or any part of the contract of the prime contractor .
If a subcontractor’s contracts with a prime contractor on any given project amount to $250,000 or more, the prime contractor must withhold 2 percent (2%) of the payments to satisfy any sales or use tax owed to the state of Georgia.
Now, if the non-resident subcontractor provides the commissioner a Georgia Non-resident Subcontractor Sales and Use Tax Bond, the general or prime contractor will not be allowed to withhold any sums due to the non-resident subcontractor with respect to sales and use taxes. This surety bond serves as an assurance to the state that the subcontractor will pay the taxes when due.
There is no specific amount set for the bond as it will be determined by the commissioner. The Georgia Code does state that the bond must not be less than $5,000 nor more than $50,000. Please check with the commissioner if you are unsure what amount your bond needs to be.
