Speaker Jon Burns Issues Statement on the Passage of Legislation Providing Tax Relief to Georgians

Today, Speaker of the House Jon Burns (R-Newington) issued the following statement in response to the passage of House Bill 1015House Bill 1019 and House Bill 1021:

“Cutting taxes and returning more money to taxpayers continues to be a priority for the Georgia House of Representatives, and today’s passage of HB 1015, HB 1019, and HB 1021 will help return over a billion dollars to Georgia families, homeowners, and taxpayers alike. Taken together, these bills will accelerate the state income tax cut from 5.75 percent to 5.39 percent, double the homestead exemption from $2,000 to $4,000, and increase the child tax deduction from $3,000 to $4,000 per child. These priorities will deliver significant relief to taxpayers across the state, put more money back into their pockets, and continue to boost our economy as the best state in the country to live, work and raise a family—and I look forward to quick passage by the Senate and signature by Governor Kemp”
