Stim­u­lus update: Geor­gia res­i­dents eli­gi­ble for rebate worth up to $500

Most Geor­gia res­i­dents have received their 2022 tax rebates from the state, but some tax­pay­ers who received an exten­sion to file their 2022 tax­es will soon get their rebate worth up to $500.
The rebates to eli­gi­ble Geor­gia res­i­dents are depen­dent on fil­ing sta­tus and tax lia­bil­i­ty. Sin­gle fil­ers get as much as $250, heads of house­holds receive as much as $375, and joint fil­ers receive as much as $500.

The state said all pay­ments were issued to those who filed their 2022 tax returns by the reg­u­lar April 18, 2023, dead­line, but it added that that those who have received a law­ful exten­sion will see their refund once their tax returns have been filed. The IRS autho­rized exten­sions for res­i­dents in parts of Geor­gia in Feb­ru­ary, allow­ing them to file by Oct. 16.
To qual­i­fy for the rebate, res­i­dents must have filed their income tax returns for 2021 and 2022, had a tax lia­bil­i­ty in 2021, and be a “Geor­gia res­i­dent, part-year res­i­dent, or non­res­i­dent.”
