The Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) requested GMA to provide the following information about the issuance of special event permits for the sale of alcohol.
None of a city's legal or regulatory responsibilities have changed, and a city still has the authority to require a local permit for special events. However, many permitees are unaware that a state special event permit is also needed from the Department of revenue.
These DOR guidelines
will assist both the city and permitees in obtaining the state special event permit.
