Alcohol and Tobacco Licenses and Permits: Citizenship Affidavit and Secure and Verifiable Document:
Georgia law requires that anyone registering for or holding an Alcohol or Tobacco License or Permit must submit a Citizenship Affidavit and Secure and Verifiable Document. If the individual signing the Affidavit is not a U.S. citizen, the Affidavit and Secure and Verifiable Document must be submitted annually when renewing the License or Permit. If the individual is a U.S. citizen and has previously submitted an Affidavit and Secure and Verifiable Document, these documents do not need to be submitted again during renewal.
The documents must be submitted online in the Georgia Tax Center (GTC). Do not mail, hand deliver, fax, or email the documents. Instructions for how to submit the required documents on GTC are available at http://dor.georgia.gov/documents/manage-license-web-request.
