Georgia: Signing Sales Tax Returns
- Nov 24, 2015 | Gail Cole
The Georgia Department of Revenue has updated the rule regarding signature requirements for tax returns. Rule 560-3-2-.27 defines terms and explains the requirements for Georgia tax return signatures.
With respect to paper sales and use tax returns: “the return preparer or third party may sign such returns on behalf of a taxpayer. By this signing, such return preparer or third party certifies that the taxpayer has granted them the authority to perform this action on their behalf. … Such return preparer is personally responsible for affixing their signature to the return.” Additional information about reporting and remitting sales tax in Georgia is available here.
