Georgia Extends Additional Tax Deadlines
April 16, 2020
The Georgia Department of Revenue announced today, April 16, 2020, that additional tax deadlines have been extended to align with federal deadlines put into place by the U.S. Treasury and IRS.
Here is the latest:
Georgia state estimated income tax payments due on both April 15, 2020 and June 15, 2020 have been extended to July 15, 2020.
Any income tax returns and/or payments due after 15, 2020, and before July 15, 2020, is now due by July 15, 2020. This extension adds additional corporate filers, and other fiscal year income tax filers, to previously announced relief.
Refund Claims for Previous Tax Years:
The statute of limitations to file a refund for claims that would have expired from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020, for a previous tax year has been extended to July 15, 2020.
Taxpayers are automatically eligible for this relief and do not need to file any additional paperwork with the Georgia Department of Revenue.
