Useful tools on the Georgia Tax Center

December 2, 2015

Due to the constant threat of tax fraud, the Georgia Department of Revenue has made recent strides to help further protect taxpayers of the state. In addition to adding a new Fraud Manager component to our Integrated Tax System, the Department has partnered with multiple Georgia state agencies, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and other state Departments of Revenue on projects that will help make the filing of tax returns more secure.
