The state of Georgia will release an amount of up to $500 in surplus tax refunds after the passage of HB 162 and HB 1302.
$500 in Surplus Tax Refund
Georgia State Revenue Commissioner Frank O’Connell announced that an amount of up to $500 will be sent to eligible residents in the state after the passage of HB 162 and HB 1302. The state agency also launched an online tool to make it easier for the claimants to file for the surplus tax refund.
In a published article in FOX5 Atlanta, taxpayers in Georgia will need to enter the Tax Year, their Social Security Number or alternate Tax Identification Number, and their Federal Adjusted Gross Income into the tool to determine their eligibility for the surplus tax refund.
Online Tool for the Surplus Tax Refund
According to a published article on the official website of Georgia Department of Revenue, taxpayers in the state should visit the Georgia Tax Center website to help taxpayers learn more about the Georgia Surplus Tax Refund and claim an amount of up to $500.
Furthermore, the Department of Revenue clarified that the agency is anticipating issuing Tax Year 2022 refunds for those who filed prior to the April deadline by July 1, 2023. However, those who filed on extension through October will not receive their surplus refund until their returns have been filed.
