The Georgia Department of Revenue is automatically extending the 2019 income tax filing and payment deadline to July 15, 2020. Vehicle registrations that expire between March 16, 2020 and May 14, 2020 are being extended through May 15, 2020.
Where's My Refund?
The Department of Revenue is protecting Georgia taxpayers from tax fraud.
- We will begin accepting returns January 27, 2020.
It may take up to 90 days from the date of receipt by DOR to process a return and issue a refund.
- All first-time Georgia income tax filers, or taxpayers who have not filed in Georgia for at least five years, will receive a paper check.
What else can I do?
- Sign up for online access and to receive notifications from the Georgia Tax Center (GTC) when a refund has been issued or when a return has been filed with your social security number.
- Adjust your Federal and State income tax withholdings for the immediate benefit of higher paychecks vs. a bigger tax refund
