Whether using the online or paper application, the DOR will notify the taxpayer if they accept or refuse their payment plan. The DOR states that subjects should expect to be informed of the status of their payment contract applications within 30 days of receiving the application. If the DOR accepts the proposal, the taxpayer is informed by mail. The letter contains the duration (number of monthly payments). It will also inform the taxpayer of the amount of each monthly payment and the date on which the taxpayer must make the first payment. Yes, the Georgian Ministry of Finance (DOR) offers public payment plans to taxpayers who are unable to pay their full taxes. An agreement like this is called a temperament contract (AI). Your payment contract allows you to cover your debts over time, instead of paying a lump sum. A Georgian tax plan can last up to 60 months.
Plans are available for both individuals and businesses. If the policyholder does not have a review or project due to insufficient resources, the taxpayer receives a “Cure/In Grace” letter. The letter will let them know if the payment is due with an additional $25 return fee to prevent the agreement from being late. If a tax payer receives a new balance or is unable to pay the monthly minimum for its existing agreement, DOR generally needs a new agreement. In this case, the DOR charges the subject a new installation fee. However, if the taxpayer simply has to change their bank and banking code, they must notify DOR at 404-417-2122 at least five days before the next project. Individuals and businesses that are indebted to the State of Georgia can establish a payment plan in different ways. The state requires a minimum payment of $25 per month. Dor does not appear to have set a debt ceiling in the requirement for a tax payment plan (as the IRS does). In addition, taxpayers should always consider alternatives, as interest and penalties are always incurred. In the event of an electronic transfer payment (EFT), DOR charges a $50 fee to set up the payment contract. If the taxpayer hands out monthly payments by paper cheque, the installation fee is increased to $100.
If the taxpayer is classified as low income, the DOR can reduce the fee to $25. In both cases, the fee is non-refundable and is added to the total balance of the subject when determining the amount of the monthly payment. The DOR offers taxpayers the opportunity to apply for an online payment contract. Taxpayers can apply for their payment plan online through the Georgian Tax Centre. Once declared in the system, individuals and businesses can offer a payment amount and a timetable. Like most government tax payment agreements, the DOR has a list of situations in which it has not approved a payment contract or payment contract. You may need to submit a financial report for approval. A tax guarantee may be a condition for compensation. If you request a payment plan (contract to temper), your application can take up to 90 days to be processed. As a general rule, you have up to 3 to 5 years to pay off your balance. In summary, the DOR offers payment agreements for both businesses and individuals. DOR provides this opportunity for GA taxpayers if they cannot pay their balance in full.
