The sales tax rate in Lumpkin County increased to 8% effective July 1, 2019. The Georgia Department of Revenue strives to make taxpayers aware of upcoming sales tax rate changes in the most efficient manner possible including publishing the information to their website, www.dor.georgia.gov and the distribution of electronic notices to e-mail subscribers. The Department of Revenue no longer mails paper notices to taxpayers. Upcoming rate change information is typically disseminated the quarter before a tax becomes effective.
