The Georgia Department of Revenue provides services in four main areas: state taxes, motor vehicles, alcohol and tobacco, and searches for unclaimed property. The department website is easy to navigate and provides links to all required forms.
In the area of state taxes, the Georgia Department of Revenue governs individuals, businesses and property owners. Individuals can use the site to download tax forms for printing and submission by mail, and to check the status of their refund. The site also links to providers of software that allows users to prepare and submit their state tax returns electronically. Business owners can access information about registration requirements and tax withholding. Property owners are able to download the forms required for reporting taxes on real and personal property.
Drivers can use the Georgia Department of Revenue site to find information about new motor vehicle registration and to renew existing registrations online. Applications for original Georgia titles are linked to the site, which also lists the state's vehicle insurance requirements.
The Georgia Department of Revenue accepts and processes applications for the sale of alcohol and tobacco. Depending on the type of sale, such as wholesale or retail, brewery or wine manufacturer, the department requires different forms, all of which are conveniently grouped and linked to the site.
Finally, the Georgia Department of Revenue maintains a searchable database of unclaimed property belonging to former or current Georgia residents. Users enter a name and city to bring up a list of any property listed by the state that might belong to them.
