Georgia residents must file a state return if the Internal Revenue Service requires them to file federal returns, if they have other income taxable in Georgia, or if their incomes exceed the amount of their standard deductions and personal exemptions, explains the Department of Revenue. Taxpayers must file their taxes by April 15. If taxpayers owe taxes, they must also submit Form 525-TV along with the tax form and documents. Taxpayers can also file electronically using free or low-fee electronic services, and a list of participating services is available at the Department of Revenue website.
