About the Department of Revenue

Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Revenue is to administer the tax laws of the State of Georgia fairly and efficiently in order to promote public confidence and compliance, while providing excellent customer service.

The Department of Revenue was created in 1938 and is the principal tax-collecting agency for the State of Georgia.  In addition to administering tax laws, the department is responsible for enforcing laws and regulations pertaining to the control of alcoholic beverages and tobacco products in Georgia as well as motor vehicle license plate and title administration.

At this site we are pleased to offer tax forms, the capability to search for unclaimed property as well as the latest tax information for individuals and tax professionals. Comprehensive information and answers to your most common questions about Alcohol & Tobacco, Compliance, Income Tax, Motor Fuel Tax, Motor Vehicle, Property Tax, and Sales and Use Tax are available through the links to these divisions.

This website is an important resource in meeting that goal. We welcome your recommendations for improving this web site. We are here to serve you and invite you to contact us with additional questions or concerns.
