General Instructions

The Georgia Department of Revenue applies the automatic six-month extension if a federal extension has been accepted, and a copy of the federal extension is attached to the return when filed.

If you did not file a federal extension, complete Georgia form IT-303 in triplicate. Mail the original form on or before April 15, 2014 to:
Georgia Department of Revenue
Processing Center
PO Box 740320
Atlanta, GA 30374-0320

Attach a second copy to your completed return when filed. Retain a copy for your records.

An extension to file your return is not an extension of time to pay your taxes.

If You Owe

If you owe taxes, payment must be made by April 15, 2014. To avoid an extension underpayment penalty you must pay at least 90% of the tax due by April 15, 2014. The extension allows additional time to complete and file your income tax return; however, the extension does not provide additional time to pay the amount of tax owed.

Pay Online

Pay your taxes online at the Georgia Tax Center.

You can also pay your taxes online at Official Payments Corporation. Visa, MasterCard, Discover Network, and American Express credit and debit cards, and other forms of payment, such as Bill Me Later® are accepted. To make a debit card payment you can use a MasterCard or Visa Debit Card or any debit card with Nyce, Pulse or Star logos.

There is a convenience fee for this service which is paid directly to the company. The amount of the fee is based on the amount of your payment.

Pay by Phone

Pay your taxes by phone by calling Official Payments toll-free at 1-800-272-9829. This automated service is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. At the end of your call you will be given a confirmation number. Save this as proof of payment for your records.

Penalty and Interest on Tax Owed

Those who do not pay the full amount due on or before April 15, 2013 will be charged interest on the unpaid balance and a late payment penalty. Those who do not file for an extension, or file late are also charged a substantial late filing penalty. The penalties are as follows:

If You Do Not Owe

If you are expecting a refund from Georgia you must still request an extension of time to file. If you are filing for a federal extension, there is nothing to file with Georgia at this time. An extension is automatically granted until October 15, 2014 for the filing of your 2013 tax return. Simply attach a copy of your Federal extension form to your Georgia return when you file. If you are not filing for a federal extension, you must request an extension from Georgia.
