Georgia Tax Filing Deadline Extended
Breaking News – Georgia Tax Filing Deadline Extended to 7/15 - Minutes ago, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued a press conference and announced that Georgia will conform with federal tax filing extensions. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has delayed Tax Day from April 15 to July 15.
The Georgia Society of CPAs (GSCPA) successfully advocated for the state tax extension. In the days since COVID-19 began, GSCPA has been working closely with the Georgia Department of Revenue (GDOR) and the Governor’s office to ask that the April 15th deadline be extended in order to provide relief for taxpayers and tax practitioners affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
GSCPA will share the official announcement and guidance once it becomes available. Please stay tuned to GSCPA’s social media channels for breaking news.
Georgia Department of Revenue (GDOR) Commissioner David Curry says, “This extension is designed to provide flexibility and relief to hard-working Georgians whose lives, both personal and professional, have been disrupted by COVID-19.”
