Taxes and Fees for Your Georgia LLC

Here’s a breakdown of the likely taxes and fees you’ll incur when you start and run an LLC in Georgia...

Georgia LLC Fees

Georgia LLC Formation and Filing Fee

When you first from your LLC in Georgia, you will need to pay a fee of $100 to file your Certificate of Formation.

Georgia Permits and Licenses

You will need to pay licensing and permit fees on a regular basis depending on the type of business you are operating and where you are located. These do vary from city to city and industry to industry. Incfile will conduct a Business License Research package for you, if you're unsure what permits and licenses you'll need for your Georgia LLC.

Georgia Annual Registration Report Fee

You will need to pay a fee of $50 every year to file your annual registration report. Quick reminder: we can help with filing your Annual Report for the cost of $88 + state fees. The benefit is no paperwork or fuss on your end, and we'll remind you year-after-year when it needs to be renewed so you don't run to the risk of automatic LLC dissolution.

Georgia Business Taxes

  • Georgia State Tax: Georgia has a state tax of around 6 percent .
  • Georgia Sales and Use Tax: Georgia sales and use taxes vary between around 6 percent and 9 percent.
  • Other Taxes: You may need to pay other taxes and fees, depending on the type of business you run. Find information on those taxes here.

Federal Business Taxes

Self-Employment Tax

Because your Georgia LLC income flows through to your personal tax return, you must pay self-employment tax (also known as FICA, Social Security or Medicare tax) on your earnings. This is typically at a rate of 15.3 percent. You will be able to deduct your business expenses from your income when working out how much self-employment tax you owe. Note that if you are an LLC electing to be treated as an S Corp, you can reduce your self-employment tax.

Federal Income Tax

You will also need to pay regular federal income tax when you file your tax return every year. You can see the federal tax bands here. Note that you will be able to apply your standard deduction, personal exemption and business expenses to this tax.
