Alcohol Tax Filers who pay Georgia Excise Tax or related Georgia license fees will be required to file and renew online beginning September 2012 through the Georgia Tax Center (GTC). The Georgia Department of Revenue (GDOR) has sent out a notice stating that businesses can begin managing their alcohol tax account with the GTC and access the new e-file templates starting September 4, 2012, in time to file August 2012 monthly tax returns.
Affected alcohol returns include, but are not limited to:
- Georgia ATT-7SP Excise Tax Return
- Georgia ATT-11 Monthly Report of Distilled Spirits Shipments to Wholesalers
- Georgia ATT-112 Report of Wine Shipments
The state sent out a second notice this week containing instructions on how to create a GTC login or add a license account to an existing login. Also noteworthy, those intending to renew their alcohol-related licenses will be expected to do so through their new GTC online account for the renewal period beginning September 4, 2012 and ending November 1, 2012.
Georgia’s announcement to go paperless joins the ranks of other online state filing systems such as Wisconsin and Ohio.
