My son received his and my wife and I received mine. yippee.
Because the GA dragged its feet and didn’t bring the state standard deduction in line with the changes at the Fed level, I owed the state over $800 on May 1. And because I didn’t benefit from itemizing on the 1040, I HAD to take the VA standard deduction. The paltry $221 received doesn’t even come close to what the numbers should have been. I’m still out just under $600 as I have never owed the state more than $100 in any given year since 2008.
This is a feel good move by the state, primarily the GOP leadership in the GA, to say, “Hey, you got a windfall because we are so good at managing things.” Horse feathers!
