April 15 is just around the corner. Only a few more days left to finish filing those taxes!

The Georgia Department of Revenue recently redesigned its website. Now it’s even easier than ever to find the form you’re looking for.

By clicking on the Forms tab in the main menu, you can search through the list of forms needed for Georgia taxes. The search box even has an autosuggest feature to help predict what form you might need. So if you start typing “500,” the Individual Income Tax Return Form 500 will automatically pop up in the drop-down options.


If you’re not sure what the form number is, but you know you need to file an individual income tax, start typing "individual income tax" and Form 500 will still pop up.


You can look at the side menu on the right under Form Filter. This provides a comprehensive list of tax topics. If you click on the link for Individual Income Tax, you’ll go straight to a list of all forms within that category AND sorted by year.

If you don’t think you’ll have time to finish your taxes by April 15, fill out an application for an extension. For state income tax extensions, you’ll need Form IT-303.

To file your federal taxes, check with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
