2011 HOUSE BILL 87 RESOURCES

SECTION 12 REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

 

Section 12 of House Bill 87 amends O.C.G.A. §36-60-6.
 
O.C.G.A. §36-60-6(e) states, in part, “Beginning December 31, 2012, and annually thereafter, any county or municipal corporation issuing or renewing a business license, occupation tax certificate, or other document required to operate a business shall provide to the Department of Audits and Accounts a report demonstrating that such county or municipality is acting in compliance with the provisions of this Code section. This annual report shall identify each license or certificate issued by the agency in the preceding 12 months and include the name of the person and business issued a license or other document and his or her federally assigned employment eligibility verification system user number as provided in the affidavit submitted at the time of application.”
 
The Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts has developed the 2012 report template and instructions in the link below for use by counties and municipal corporations that complies with the requirements of this provision and that may be submitted either electronically using our HB 87 Collection System or by mail.  Please note that if you wish to submit the report electronically, you must use the House Bill 87 Immigration Act Collection System.  Due to computer system and staff limitations, we will be unable to accept or acknowledge reports submitted by email.  
 
 
Note that the Code section above references submission to the county or municipal corporation of an affidavit. O.C.G.A. §36-60-6(f) states “In order to assist private businesses and counties and municipal corporations in complying with the provisions of this Code section, the Attorney General shall provide a standardized form affidavit which may be used as acceptable evidence demonstrating use of the federal employment eligibility verification system or that the provisions of subsection (b) of this Code section do not apply to the applicant. The form affidavit shall be posted by the Attorney General on the Department of Law’s official website no later than January 1, 2012.” The following is the link to the Georgia Department of Law’s website:
