Georgia residents who obtained an extension to file their 2022 income tax returns have nine days to do so and be able to receive a refund of up to $500 dollars.
Most people living in the state filed their taxes on the normal due date, which was in April, and then got their tax refund shortly after.
However, those in Georgia who were affected by the severe storms earlier this year were given the opportunity to file their taxes until October 16.
These taxpayers who got the extension will have their refunds once they have filed their 2022 tax returns.
Taxpayers must have filed their income tax returns for 2021 and 2022 to be eligible for the refund.
“Georgia is once again in a position to issue surplus tax refunds thanks to years of responsible, conservative budgeting and because we chose to protect lives and livelihoods during the pandemic,” said Governor Brian Kemp, according to the Washington Examiner.
“While failed policies coming out of Washington, DC, are pushing us closer to a recession and forcing Georgian workers to endure sky-high inflation, we, at the state level, are doing what we can to put money back where it belongs. “It belongs: in the hands of the taxpayers,” he added.
The payment amounts sent to taxpayers depend on their filing status.
For single taxpayers, the refund can be up to $250 dollarsand for heads of family, up to $375.
On the other hand, joint filers can receive a refund of up to $500.
