Some Georgia tax rebates for 2023 are on the way to eligible Georgians since the state is sending nearly $1 billion in surplus tax funds. This is the second time Georgia has issued special payments to eligible state residents. Last year, when so-called “stimulus checks” were popular, Georgia was among over 20 states that returned billions of dollars in surplus tax revenue to taxpayers.

In a statement regarding the 2023 Georgia surplus tax refunds, Gov. Brian Kemp said, “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 both lives and livelihoods during the pandemic.”
