Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia signed a bill into law in March that will provide eligible state residents with additional economic payments following their tax filing.
“HB 1302 will provide a one-time tax credit to taxpayers who filed income tax returns for the fiscal years 2020 and 2021,” the governor’s office stated in a statement.
The statement states that once a taxpayer files their taxes for 2021, the state’s department of revenue will issue additional credits. Individual taxpayers will receive a $250 tax credit, while married couples will receive a $500 tax credit. According to the governor’s office, a taxpayer who is considered the head of the household will receive a $375 payment.

“When the government collects more revenue than it requires, I believe that excess revenue should be returned to the taxpayer, because it is your money, not the government’s,” Kemp previously stated.
In Indiana, Governor Eric Holcomb announced that eligible state residents will receive a “125 Automatic Taxpayer Refund” after filing their 2021 taxes.
Residents of New Mexico may also be eligible for a tax rebate after filing their taxes on Monday, following Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s March signing of legislation. Single taxpayers will receive a $250 one-time tax rebate, while married taxpayers will receive a $500 one-time tax rebate.
