Get started resolving your state tax liabilities using the information below. If you still need help, reach out to us using the contact form to the right of this page.

The GA-DOR has a reputation around here for being pretty slow when it comes to granting resolutions for back tax liabilities.  Hope for the best, but expect a long process.

GA-DOR Monthly Payment Plan

Personal Income Tax

  • May be allowed up to 60 months to pay, but 24 - 36 months is the preferred term range
  • Your Installment Agreement payment will have to be set up as a direct debit from your bank account

Business Sales & Use and Withholding Tax

  • You'll probably need to make a 33% down payment
  • Typical payment plans last 6 to 12 months, although 18 months may be possible.  On very rare occasions we’ve seen as many as 36 months granted to struggling taxpayers.

State of Georgia Offer in Compromise

  • Georgia can take 6 to 8 weeks to acknowledge receipt of your OIC after you’ve submitted it.
  • states that the Department gives strong consideration to the following:
    • The taxpayer's ability to pay
    • The amount of equity in the taxpayer's assets
    • The taxpayer's present and future income
    • The taxpayer's present and future expenses
    • The potential for changed circumstances
    • Whether the offer is in the best interest of the state

Penalty Relief

The GA-DOR Request for Penalty Waiver form states:

Please note that the Department cannot consider a penalty waiver request if there is an outstanding tax liability or missing returns.

That means you have to pay the tax liabilities in full before the state will consider removing penalties.  Even then, the chances are usually slim.
