Georgia: Signing Sales Tax Returns


 The dos and don'ts of signing sales tax returns in Georgia.

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.
