    On January 1, 1993, the Georgia Department of Revenue initiated a new system enabling taxpayers to electronically transfer tax payments to State bank accounts. Georgia Law (OCGA 48-2-32) allows the Revenue Commissioner to require any person or business owing more than $10,000 in connection with any return, report, or other document required to be filed with the Department of Revenue on or after July 1, 1992 to pay any such Sales Tax, Withholding Tax, Motor Fuel Distributor Tax, Corporate Estimated Income Tax, or Individual Estimated Income Tax liability to the Revenue Department by electronic funds transfer.

    The Georgia EFT program is a simple process to send your payments to the Revenue Department electronically instead of writing and mailing checks. It is a safe and efficient means of making payments using techniques that banks and businesses have used for years. Payments move almost instantaneously from the taxpayer's account to the Revenue Department's account, ensuring that your payment is received by the due date.

    Once registration is complete (7 - 10 business days. TouchTone instructions and Internet instructions will be mailed.) Continue to submit checks until instructions received.

    Tax Types Currently Paying Electronically

    Only Sales Tax, Withholding Tax, Motor Fuel Distributor Tax, and Corporate Estimated Income Tax are currently mandated for EFT Registration.

    Payment Method

    Electronic Funds Transfer by ACH will be the only acceptable means of payment. The taxpayer must make tax payments by EFT subsequent to registration with the EFT Section.

  • ACH-CREDIT (Payroll companies and case by case situations) may be chosen by companies already having experience using this method. To find out more about each method of ACH transaction please click on the appropriate link.

    Fedwire transfers are not accepted by the Georgia Department of Revenue.

    Unauthorized check payments may be subject to an EFT non-compliance penalty.
