Brian Kemp, the Governor of Georgia, has recently signed House Bill 1302 which will ensure a new stimulus check to the residents of the state. The Department of Revenue in Georgia under this bill will provide a refund to the residents who have filed their income tax refund on time and this refund will be provided just once. 

Stimulus Check Of $500, $375, And $250 For Georgia Residents

In case an individual is married or has filed his or her income tax returns with their spouse, the net worth of the stimulus check would be $500. Moreover, as per this bill, the refund that the head of a household will receive is worth $375 and every individual who will file the returns alone will get $250 as a refund from this proposal. 

As per Kemp, this stimulus check will be given to the residents just once and this is the money of the people which will be returned to them by the State Government. The money for this new proposal is not coming from the Federal Government or the American Rescue Plan Act of Joe Biden, the President of America. 

However, as Kemp described, the money for the stimulus check which is approximately a billion dollars are coming from their strict conservative policy while making the state budget during the pandemic. These policies of budgets were made by lawmakers and Kemp stated that they must return the rightful money of the citizens in the form of a refund. 

This new initiative will result in the transfer of the mentioned amount to the bank accounts of the eligible residents within a few weeks. The eligibility criteria will be simple i.e. someone who has filed their income tax returns for the years 2020-2021. Moreover, this extra payment cannot be availed by trusts, estates, dependents, and non-residents. The stimulus check will be sent to the individuals who have filed their tax returns for the year 2021.
