File Tax and Wage Reports and Make Payments
All employers who are liable for unemployment insurance (UI) must file a tax and wage report for each quarter they are in business. Active employers should receive a printed report by mail during the last week of each quarter. The reports, and any payment due, must be filed on or before April 30th, July 31st, October 31st and January 31st. Employers must report all wages paid to employees. However, taxes are due only on the first $8,500 per employee per year. Effective January 1, 2013, the taxable wage base in Georgia will increase from $8,500 to $9,500 in accordance with 2012 GA House Bill 347. Qualified employers may defer quarterly taxes of $5.00 or less until January 31st of the following year. Tax and wage reports may be filed using the following three methods: Internet, Magnetic Media, or by paper. Each option is detailed below.

Domestic Employers must file an annual report on Form DOL-4A, which is not available online, but is mailed to Domestic Employers in December of each year. The annual report, and any payment due, must be filed on or before January 31st of the following year to be considered timely.
