Georgia Business Rejection due to Missing Signing Officer Information
When filing Georgia Corporation, S-Corporation and Partnership returns, the state of Georgia requires the Signing Officer and Title to be part of the return. TurboTax is currently allowing Georgia Business returns to be electronically filed without the Signing Officer information therefore causing the following rejection:
