Sources: Gov. Kemp considered new round of tax rebates
ATLANTA (WFXG) - Thanks to a budget surplus, Georgia residents could see more tax rebates. FOX 5's Claire Simms reports that the governor is looking at another round of rebates similar to the one that went out over the summer.
State lawmakers approved a bill back in March to distribute $250 rebates for single filers, $500 for joint filers and $375 for heads of household with dependents.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams recently proposed a similar rebate but limited to Georgians who make $250,000 or less. "Georgians need money in their pockets and a roof over their heads – and we need to invest to help them meet this moment," said Stacey Abrams.
This time, the governor is also considering a property tax rebate for homeowners. He is expected to make an official announcement later this week.
