Georgia Income Tax Returns Are Being Processed And Accepted Despite IRS Delay

The Internal Revenue Service announced on January 20 that they will not accept e-filed or paper returns from a select group of taxpayers until mid-February due to changes to the 2010 Federal Internal Revenue Code. However, the Georgia Department of Revenue announced today it is accepting and processing Georgia income tax returns that are e-filed via the joint IRS e-file system.

The affected taxpayers who e-file their Georgia income tax return only will have the return accepted and processed without delay. All paper filed Georgia income tax returns will also be accepted.

The IRS announcement affects all 1040 filers with a Schedule A, among others. For more information on the affected taxpayers, please see the IRS press release which can be accessed here:,,id=234736,00.html?portlet=7
