Information and Records Requests

Disclosure of Taxpayer Information

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 Legal Affairs & Tax Policy Division at Tax.Policy@dor.ga.gov
