How to Find Out If I Owe Delinquent Taxes in Georgia

Paying your taxes is important. Delinquent tax debt can get you into financial or legal trouble. If you owe enough, you could even face a jail sentence. Luckily, it's easy to find out if you owe delinquent taxes in Georgia. Check both the state and regional tax offices when you're looking for unpaid tax debt. Missed taxes can land you with a hefty bill, including late fines and penalties, equally much more than if you settled up before you're investigated.

Step 1

Call the Georgia Department of Revenue at 877-423-6711 to ask if you are delinquent in paying your Georgia taxes. You will have to provide the representative with your name, address and Social Security number.

Step 2

Write down the amount of debt you owe. If the representative sees that your debt has reached lien status, she will refer you to your regional tax office.

Step 3

Call the regional tax office. Ask if you owe any back taxes. They will be able to provide you with payment information and help you set up an installment plan, if necessary.
