(Forsyth County, GA) Forsyth County residents, along with all Georgians, will soon be receiving an additional one-time refund from their state taxes.

House Bill 1302, which Governor Brian Kemp recently signed, allows for a bigger refund for Georgians due to a revenue surplus from 2020.

"Due to years of responsible, conservative budgeting and our measured reopening that prioritized protecting both lives and livelihoods, Georgia is in a position to issue these one-time refunds," Kemp said. "As hardworking Georgians face rising inflation caused by failed federal government policies, we are doing what we can to provide relief by returning their money back into their pockets."

Each refund amount will be based on a person’s individual tax liability.

  • Single people and married individuals who filed their taxes separately from their spouse could receive up to $250
  • Head of Household individuals could receive up to $375
  • Married couples who filed jointly could receive up to $500

The Department of Revenue estimates all refunds will be processed by early August for those who filed their taxes by April 18, 2022. However, due to the quantity of refunds, they say it may take some time to process them all. An individual’s 2021 tax return must be processed in order for them to receive their H.B. 1302 refund.
