It’s that time of the year again: Tax season. Time to pull out those calculators and open up those W-2s.

As technology progresses, filing your taxes gets easier and easier. Now, just clicking a few buttons gets the job done. The Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) provides a list of free electronic filing services with certain software companies. These tools make it simple and convenient to get your taxes filed correctly.

You can, of course, still send in your tax forms through the mail. Feel free to search the DOR’s website for the proper forms needed for your specific situation. Follow the instructions, fill out the forms and stick them in the mail! Don’t bother doing certified mail though because that will not speed up the process. DOR recommends using First Class, Priority Mail through the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). You can either include a Certificate of Mailing or Express Mail through the USPS.

After you’ve submitted all of your forms, check in with the Georgia Tax Center to find your refund and see your account.
