State Tax Day - Current,S.3,Georgia—Personal Income Tax: Federally Excluded Unemployment Must be Added Back,(Apr. 7, 2021)

Georgia released updated income tax guidance stating that unemployment income remains taxable at the state level and must be included in a taxpayer’s income on their Georgia return.

Federal Law

Georgia updated its IRC conformity date before the adoption of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The ARPA included temporary changes to the taxability of unemployment income at the federal level in addition to other measures.

State Addition

Because the provisions of ARPA have not been adopted in Georgia, unemployment income remains taxable at the state level and must be included in a taxpayer’s income on their Georgia return. Any unemployment income that was excluded on the taxpayer’s federal return should be added back on Georgia Form 500, Schedule 1, line 5.
