Fox 5 Eye Witness News. If Gov. Deal can't fix it, Georgians will be hit for billions more in taxes, in 2018. 

 

You may as well have that rase in your paycheck put onto your tax bill.

I paid all my taxes when I lived in Paulding County, FreeBird! After getting broke I moved out. A broke person doesn't pay taxes. It would be like getting blood out of a turnip. I am now much like a turnip. My money life is over.

The governor and legislature are well aware of the potential for this to adversely affect GA taxpayers.  The governor is more concerned right now with getting Delta's jet fuel tax exemption back on the books...

 

This is expected to ultimately result in a 'windfall' for the state of around 3 billion dollars (if memory serves) if nothing is done to rectify the situation.  Of course, lawmakers who have mentioned fixing it have stated they want to return the money to 'families with children' as if the rest of us don't pay our fair share (or more) of that 'windfall'...

From what I can see, it's only about 20% of tax payers that will pay all of that windfall, (those that currently itemize on the Federal taxes, but with the new higher standard deductible and the reduced deductions will now need to take the new standard deductible).   They will now be stuck taking the GA Standard deductible at $3000 instead instead of the $12K to 23K deduction they had before.   However, all the "fixes" I've heard so far involve giving the money to those *other* than the ones paying it, so it sounds like those people are screwed no matter what.

I'd be making enough money to pay taxes on my earnings if Paulding County hadn't forced me to spend it all on lawyers. 

 

I pay a lot of property taxes, and vehicle taxes, still. 

 

I paid a lot of income taxes for almost 50 years.
