To speed tax disputes through the courts, legislators last spring unanimously passed House Bill 100. By creating the Georgia Tax Tribunal, the bill aims to foster consistency and transparency as businesses and individuals confront complex tax law.

Shortly after the law took effect, Governor Nathan Deal appointed tax attorney Charles R. Beaudrot Jr. as the court's administrative law judge, and earlier this month the court officially opened to consider cases.

Business leaders and economists hope that the new court will encourage taxpayers to work more closely with the Georgia Department of Revenue to settle disputes and promote a greater sense of trust in the tax system.
