Governor Kemp described these payments as tax money simply going back to taxpayers.

This money does not come from American Rescue Plan funding that states receiving during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds come from a surplus worth over $1 billion dollars that was made by the state during the pandemic.


Qualifying individuals need to have filed tax returns in 2020 and 2021.

Non-residents, estates, trusts and dependents do not qualify for the payment.

If you already filed your return for 2021, you’ll see your payment come separate from your original refund.
