The Georgia Department of Revenue Will Start Giving Out Special Tax Refunds!
Georgia Governor Brian P. Kemp and the Department of Revenue (DOR) announced today that special, one-time tax refunds will begin this week. This endeavor is the product of House Bill 1302, which was just passed by the Georgia General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Kemp.
Due to the state’s revenue excess, this legislation allows for an additional income tax rebate beginning in 2020.
“Georgia is in a position to offer these one-time refunds due to years of responsible, conservative spending and our measured reopening that emphasized protecting both lives and livelihoods,” stated Governor Kemp.
“As hardworking Georgians suffer rising inflation as a result of failed federal government policies, we’re doing everything we can to help by putting money back in their pockets.”
The maximum reimbursement for single filers and married couples filing separately is $250. Filers who are the head of the household could obtain a maximum return of $375.
A maximum reimbursement of $500 is available to married couples who submit joint returns. The amount of the refund will be determined by an individual’s tax liability.
State Revenue Commissioner Robyn Crittenden said, “I want to applaud the entire team at DOR for their hard work and diligence in issuing these refunds to hardworking Georgians in a timely way.”
Due to the high volume of returns, processing all refunds may take some time. The Department expects to issue nearly all refunds for returns submitted by April 18, 2022, by early August.
Your H.B. 1302 refund will not be released until your tax return for the year 2021 has been processed. Visit this page for more details.
