What are the requirements for non-resident contractors who wish to do business in the state of Georgia?

Georgia Nonresident Contractor Performance Tax Bond

The Georgia Department of Revenue requires the following to be submitted to their department for non-residents whose contract on a project is at least $10,000:

More information about these registration requirements can be found on the GA Dept. of Revenue website, as well as in Georgia Code Title 48, Chapter 13, Article 2.

What is the purpose of this surety bond?

This bond is required as a financial guarantee to the state of Georgia that the non-resident contractor will pay all associated taxes. If the contractor fails to pay their Georgia taxes, the state can make a claim against their Georgia Nonresident Contractor Tax Bond, which the surety company will pay out if settled. Unlike insurance, the bond principal (the non-resident contractor in this case) must repay the surety for any losses incurred due to claims.

This bond should be in an amount equal to 10% of the contract price, or the compensation to be received for each contract for non-resident contractors.
