Our Mission

Local Business License Tax  

Georgia cities and counties may impose a tax on the gross receipts of financial institutions located within their respective jurisdictions. This tax is known as the Local Business License Tax and is filed on Form PT-440 with the cities and counties.  

State Occupation Tax

The State also imposes a gross receipts tax known as the State Occupation Tax which is filed on Form 900. The State Occupation Tax and copies of the Local Business License Tax Forms are filed with the State each year by March 1.  

The law provides for cities and counties that choose to impose the gross receipts tax to set a levy of not more than the State rate of 0.25 of one percent. A city or county may establish a minimum tax levy of $1,000.

Other Taxes

In addition to the tax on gross receipts, financial institutions are subject to personal property taxes, real property taxes, corporate net worth taxes, and corporate income taxes (see Taxpayer Services Division for questions about corporate net worth taxes and corporate income taxes).

O.C.G.A. 48-6-90. - 48-6-98.
