Governor Brian Kemp said that the state’s multi-billion-dollar reserve will provide a cushion most states won’t enjoy during any unforeseen economic downturns. Atlanta Gov. Kemp signed into law an income tax refund bill that will give many Georgians a tax refund. The budget signed by Kemp allows for the special refund with over $1 billion in surplus funds on its way back to taxpayers.

To get the refund, taxpayers need to have filed their 2021 and 2022 taxes. Like last year, single tax flower and married individuals who file separately could receive up to $250, head of household filers could receive up to a maximum refund of $375 and married individuals who file joint returns could receive a maximum refund of $500, based on an individual or couple’s tax liability.

The Income Tax Refund Bill Singed By Kemp States

The Georgia Department of Revenue will begin issuing the special income tax refund bill signed by the Governor within six to eight weeks. Around that same time, Georgians will be able to check the status of their refund on the department’s website. State officials expect to issue most refunds by July 1. Kemp put his signature on the updated state budget Friday and approved the refunds Tuesday

This is the second state income tax refund of its kind in as many years. Last year the Governor and his teams returned over a billion dollars to the taxpayers of their state and he was very proud that they were doing it again. With that, he thanked the General Assembly which supported this measure to help Georgia families fighting through 40-year high inflation. The bill also includes money to fund more nurse training and to help paraprofessionals become certified teachers.
