Attention DeKalb County merchants: your sales taxes have gone up. If you need help implementing this on your point-of-sale, it’s not too late.

DeKalb County citizens passed a sales tax increase late last year and it went into effect on April 1, 2018.

As we mentioned, you can put this change into your point of sale. If you are an active Postec support customer, we will change it at no cost. Just fill out this Tax Change Request Form.

If you are not an active support customer, no worries. We’ll do it for half the cost of our normal hour support rate. You can use the same form or call our 24/7 LiveSupport line at 800.783.9413 (Option 1).

The increase came in the form of a new Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax that will fund new road construction. It caused the tax rate in Dekalb County outside the city of Atlanta to increase from seven percent to eight percent. The total sales tax rate for Dekalb County inside the City of Atlanta remains at 8.9 percent.

Please note: the sales tax legislation exempted food and food ingredients from being affected.

As a result, food sales in DeKalb County outside the City of Atlanta will remain at three percent and food sales in DeKalb County inside the City of Atlanta will remain at 4.9 percent.
