Instructions and Help about Which Form 843 Delays

If Georgia is taking new steps to protect you from having your tax refund stolen and trying to keep the state from being ripped off at the same time, Channel 2 investigative reporter Jody Fleischer is live in Midtown Atlanta with how those measures could affect you and your employer. Jody, well Wendy, the state is now requiring all employers to send in every W-2 by the end of this month. They used to have until the end of February to do that, and the state will not start processing your tax return until they get that information and verify it against what you sent in. Now, in years past, they used to just trust the information you sent in and go ahead and start processing your refund, increasing the chance for fraud. We want to make sure that not a single dollar goes out the door to someone that isn't entitled to it. Georgia revenue commissioner Lynn Riley says the latest changes are part of an ongoing effort to reduce tax fraud, which costs the state millions and individual taxpayers even more in money and headaches. Unfortunately, it's growing every day. The criminals know that a computer keyboard is now the new tool to try to get somebody else's money away from them. The state will no longer pay a refund until the W-2 you submit is matched with the one from your employer to validate for accuracy and your identity. We've made a determination based on all of the fraudulent attempts that have occurred in recent years that we must verify different data that's presented to us on the return. She recommends adjusting your withholdings to make your refund smaller and less attractive to fraudsters, and file early to beat them to it. You can also register online...
