The Department of Revenue is reminding taxpayers that the upcoming income tax filing deadline is Monday, October 16, 2023. This will impact Georgians who filed for a federal extension. As this date is approaching, DOR wants to ensure your return is received in a timely manner. Before receiving the HB 162 refund, Georgians must file their tax return timely.
“The Department of Revenue salutes taxpayers for their timeliness in completing their income tax returns before the extension deadline,” said State Revenue Commissioner Frank O’Connell. “The proactive approach contributes to a much smoother process for both taxpayers and the Department.”

Taxpayers who filed for a federal extension automatically received an extension for their Georgia state taxes as well, with no additional forms required. Taxpayers who did not obtain a federal filing extension must have submitted Georgia Form IT-303 by April 18,2023 to receive an extension on their state income tax return. However, all tax payments owed were still due by the April 18, 2023, original due date, regardless of any extensions granted. To avoid penalties, returns on a valid extension must be received or postmarked no later than the October 16, 2023, extended filing date. The DOR appreciates taxpayers’ attention to this important tax deadline.
Georgians who were impacted by Hurricane Idalia in the affected counties and had a valid extension until October 16, 2023 to file their 2022 return will now have until February 15, 2024, to file their return.
