Stacey Abrams Leads Fight to Lower Costs for Georgians, While Brian Kemp Rejects Tax Relief
As Georgians continue to struggle with rising costs, Stacey Abrams is calling for new tax rebates that would deliver a major break for households making less than $250,000, including $500 for joint tax filers, $375 for heads of households and $250 for single tax filers.
The proposal would provide relief to about “95% of income tax filers in the state” and be funded by the American Rescue Plan, which Gov. Kemp strongly opposed.
This comes as Kemp is also refusing to follow Abrams’ lead and commit to suspending Georgia’s gas tax through the end of the year or back tax rebates for Georgians.
“Stacey Abrams knows that Georgians need relief now. That’s why she’s leading the call for lower costs,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “On the other hand, Brian Kemp continues to refuse to support Abrams’ call for tax relief, showing he’s out-of-touch and on the wrong side of the issues that matter most to Georgians.”
