Many states have already sent tax refunds of up to $1,500, and in the latest round, Georgia residents could receive direct payments of up to $500.
Am I entitled to a tax reduction?
Full details of this latest round of direct tax refund payments in the state of Georgia have yet to be revealed, but it’s worth watching the latest round for a hint.
Last time, millions of Georgians were able to claim rebates of between $250 and $500.
To qualify, you will likely need:
- Be a year-round resident of Georgia
- Have filed a 2020 and 2021 tax return
- Apply on time
How much will I receive?
The amount of your refund will depend on your situation. Part-year residents will likely only get a partial refund, while full-year residents could see up to $500.
Also based on the last time, you can expect the following amounts:
- Head of household: $375
- Single candidate: 250
- Co-registrants: 500
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp also hinted that further rebates could be on the way, similar to landowners.
There has been controversy, however, with Democratic challenger Stacey Abrahams wanting there to be an end point to stop those tax refunds from further lining the pockets of those who don’t need the extra help.
“Georgia needs to stop giving money to millionaires and make sure we put money in the pockets of our families,” Ms Abrahams said.
What other states give money?
Georgia is far from the only state providing direct payments and other types of tax refunds today. It’s worth looking around and seeing what you might qualify for in your area.
Rhode Island, Hawaii, Colorado, and Connecticut are just a few of the states that currently have similar programs in effect.
