Information and Records Requests
The Georgia Department of Revenue is generally prohibited by state statute from releasing taxpayer information pursuant to the confidentiality provisions of O.C.G.A. §§ 48-2-15(a) and 48-7-60(a). O.C.G.A. § 48-2-15(a) provides in relevant part that "information secured by the commissioner incident to the administration of any tax shall be confidential and privileged.” The Department of Revenue may release certain taxpayer information upon receipt of the taxpayer’s express written authorization to disclose. Questions regarding access to Department records and information may be referred to the Office of the General Counsel at [email protected].
Request a Copy of a Tax Return
The Department’s Taxpayer Services Division offers 3 options for obtaining your own tax information. For more information on how to obtain copies of tax returns, please visit How to Request a Copy of a Tax Return.
Open Records Request
The Georgia Open Records Act establishes the right to inspect and/or receive certain public records, with exceptions. Please note that most tax information cannot be accessed through an Open Records Request because it is protected by the confidentiality laws. To request your own tax information, please refer to the Request a Copy of a Tax Return section above. Costs for these requests may vary based on the scope of the request.
To submit an Open Records Request, please submit an inquiry to [email protected].
