Residents of Mississippi will be receiving up to $500 one-time tax rebates in 2023. The funding for these rebates will come from the $270 million excess taxes collected by the state, says Patteson.
Thanks to Mississippi’s Lieutenant Governor Delbert Hosemann, residents of the state will be receiving one-time tax rebates of up to $500 in 2023. The budget for this proposal will come from the excess taxes collected by the state. $270 million worth of excess taxes were collected after Mississippi officials authorized the $500 million in income taxes cut— the largest in the state’s history.
According to Mississippi officials, tax rebates would amount to a maximum of $500. Clarion Ledger says this amount has been added with the amount they had already budgeted. However, it is still not certain if this proposal will pass the legislative session that is set to start on January 3, 2023. According to reports, this is because members of the Mississippi House have been turning the proposal down.
