ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Georgia lawmakers will consider major changes to Georgia's tax system during the upcoming General Assembly session, and they want your input.

A special council on Tax Reform and Fairness is traveling the state to hear from the public.

They were at Darton Thursday night.

The council will study the current revenue structure and recommend changes to the tax code that hopefully will help attract more industry.

"We'll examine income, sales tax, corporate income tax, motor fuel tax, and the rest of them to see if there are things that need to be changed, modified, or re-shuffled to improve the competitive climate for Georgia," said AD Frazier, Georgia Tax Council Chair.

Property taxes are not included in this study. The council will take their findings to the legislature in January.
