The Georgia Department of Revenue strives to protect Georgia taxpayers from tax fraud. It may take up to 12 weeks from the date of receipt by GADOR to process a return and issue a refund. All first-time Georgia income tax filers, or taxpayers who have not filed in Georgia for at least five (5) years, will receive a paper check.

What can cause a delay in my Georgia refund?

A number of things could cause a delay in your Georgia refund, including:

  • Paper filed returns.
  • If the department needs to verify information reported on your return or request additional information, the process will take longer.
  • Math errors in your return or other adjustments.
  • You used more than one form type to complete your return.
  • Your return was missing information or incomplete.
  • Additional steps to protect you from fraud. The GADOR states that it may take up to 90 business days from the date of receipt to process a return and issue a refund.
