Note: your Account ID is an eight digit number, and is not your Federal Employer Identification Number or Social Security Number. Select the Proceed button and then select Yes to confirm your request. A confirmation number will be given to you. You can clink on the Print button to keep this for your records.
Is GTC a secure website?
Yes. GTC was designed using up-to-date security technology to ensure the privacy of your transactions. In addition the login and user authentication areas are designed to assure users that they can access their tax filing information in a secure environment.
Who can create or delete a user Id for my business?
There are two ways to create a GTC user ID:
1. A user can create a GTC user Id with the “signup for web access” link on the GTC welcome page.
- They will need to provide the account number, zip code, last payment amount (if applicable), and effective date, of at least one of the accounts under the STI to create a user ID.
- If a taxpayer has more than one account, they can add them by providing the account details.
- The administrator of the STI is able to establish access levels for additional user IDs. This can be done through either the default access levels already specified for the STI, or by changing the user’s access level.
- The administrator can create a new user ID for the STI and add access to any of the accounts linked to their profile.
2. New third party filers that do not have a tax account with the Georgia Department of Revenue must download and submit the Bulk Filer Registration form (CRF-Bulk). The DOR will create their Administrator user ID, and in turn, the new administrator can create all other IDs needed by the Third Party filer.
