LESS Crime Act FAQ

Q: I already have a Georgia Tax Center account, can I use my current account?

A. YES, If you already have a Georgia Tax Center account for the correct account type
you are wanting the tax credit for, use your existing account. You will need to create an
account based on what you want the tax credit for. i.e., If you want to qualify for the tax
credit as a business, you must create a ‘Business Income Tax’ account. If you want to
qualify for the tax credit as an individual or couple, you must create an ‘Individual Income
Tax’ account.

A. To create an account, you will select the account type (Business or Individual), verify
your identity with your Social Security # and most recent Federal AGI, and enter in your
home address and email address.

apply and receive a tax credit under the LESS Crime Act?
