Residents of Georgia could see up to $500 in tax rebates this week.
The plan was signed in March 2022 by Governor Brian Kemp.
How much can you get?
Georgia had a $1 billion budget surplus and will be distributing it back to its residents. Taxpayers will receive a one-time payment from Georgia’s Department of Revenue. Read more about it here.
How much you receive will depend on your filing status:
- Single or married filing separately: $250
- Head of household: $375
- Married filing jointly: $500
The money will come in your tax return unless it has already been processed. If that is the case, you’ll get a separate check. Approximately 5.3 million individual tax returns have been processed and 3.4 million refunds issued.
Who is eligible?
Anyone who has been a Georgia resident and filed tax returns for 2020 and 2021 is eligible for the refund. If you were a part-time resident you could be eligible for a partial refund.
