Strive For Excellence!


The Georgia Association of Business Tax Officials (GABTO) is a nonprofit, statewide organization made up of professionals dedicated to licensing and taxing businesses and occupations according to Georgia law. We are committed to helping our members better serve their business community with greater efficiency and professionalism.

Our members are committed to remaining current on the latest trends in business taxation and occupational licensing and regulations. We strive to provide the best resources and education for our members and the business community. Our members range from City and County Clerks, Auditors, Business License and Tax Administrators, Accounting Assistants, and Code Enforcement personnel.
