Georgia is discussing cutting income taxes and adopting FairTax, balancing economic growth with revenue concerns and fair tax policies.

Georgia Considers Income Tax Reduction and FairTax System in Recent Debates

Georgia has been debating whether to reduce or eliminate income taxes. Governor Brian Kemp recently signed a bill to gradually lower income tax rates, aiming for a rate of 4.99% by 2025. This move is seen as a way to boost the economy and attract businesses to the state, according to the report of The Center Square.
In a recent Republican primary, many voters supported exploring the FairTax system which would replace income and sales taxes with a consumption-based tax. Supporters argue it would simplify taxes and help lower-income families.
However, eliminating income taxes raises concerns about how the state would generate enough revenue. Lt. Governor Burt Jones supports the idea, saying it could spur economic growth. But experts warn about the need for a sustainable way to fund government services.
