GEORGIA – Albany City Commission Approves Request For Sales Tax Records

Business sales tax records will become a little more transparent for Albany finance officials as they take advantage of a law passed last year allowing them to see the amount of sales tax dollars reported to the Georgia Department of Revenue.

Prior to the implementation in July of Senate Bill 371, approved last year and signed by Gov. Brian Kemp, local governments received no information on sales and use taxes collected by vendors, city Finance Director Derrick Brown said.

The Albany City Commission on Tuesday authorized Brown to request those records for the city’s fiscal year of July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019.
