The Georgia Tax Tribunal ruled that sales of books by out-of-state dealers are taxable when Georgia teachers act as representatives for the dealers.

The taxpayer is an out-of-state company selling books and other educational materials. The taxpayer makes its sales through teachers. The teachers (1) place, receive, and distribute orders and (2) handle all complaints, concerns, returns, and refunds.

Sales by out-of-state dealers with representatives in Georgia are taxable. Representatives are non-employees acting on behalf of dealers. Teachers are non-employees acting on behalf of a company when they facilitate the ordering process. As a result, the taxpayer's Georgia sales are taxable.
