Taxpayers in Georgia have learned the hard way that the State of Georgia, Department of Revenue has been aggressive in tax collection efforts in recent years. For people who owe state back taxes or can’t afford to pay their Georgia state income taxes, filing delinquent tax returns can be stressful.
Atlanta taxpayers should know the Georgia Department of Revenue is under new leadership this year. As a member of the tax section leadership team for the Georgia Society of CPAs, I had the chance to hear the new Tax Commissioner Mr. Douglas J. MacGinnite, Esq. speak at our recent annual meeting with the Georgia Department of Revenue. At this annual Executive Roundtable, Atlanta tax attorneys and CPAs who are members of the Society participate in a discussion with government leaders regarding taxpayer concerns – in the spirit of making our tax system work better for everyone.
With the incoming tax law leadership at the helm, I find myself optimistic that there will be opportunities for flexibility for taxpayers to settle their state tax debt, back taxes, and in negotiating tax audits successfully. As an Atlanta tax attorney, I look forward to more opportunity for me to help my clients resolve their tax problems.
