Question

I need to request extension to file my state return — Specifically, I need to file Georgia tax extension. How do I file for a Georgia extension?

Answer

If you filed for a federal extension, you’ll get an automatic six-month extension to file your Georgia return. Then, when you file your Georgia return, attach either of these to your state return:

  • Copy of your federal extension Form 4868
  • IRS confirmation letter that you did file an extension

However, if you need to pay Georgia tax, you must complete Form IT-560 and send it and your payment by May 17, 2021, to:

Georgia Department of Revenue Processing Center
P.O. Box 105198
Atlanta, GA 30348-5198

If you don’t file for a federal extension, use Georgia Form 303 to request your state extension. Send Form 303 by May 17, 2021, to:

Georgia Department of Revenue Processing Center
P.O. Box 740320
Atlanta, GA 30374-0320

Attach a copy of Form IT-303 to your return.
