Georgia Individual Income Tax Provisions

States have the ability to tax their residents using one of three different individual income tax methods: Joint, Combined, or a mix of the two. Georgia has adopted the joint system of state taxation, in which couples are taxed on a single amount of income, calculated by adding the two spouses' incomes together. This is similar to the method used by the federal government.

The tax base is structured using federal adjusted gross income as a starting point. While the federal AGI is a guide, there are some notable differences between the state and federal systems regarding what income is included in the tax base.

Exemptions

Income from these sources are exempt from inclusion by the state of Georgia:

  • Interest from U.S. Government bonds
  • Social Security benefits
  • Retirement or pension income up to $65,000 at age 65+ ($35,000 between ages of 62 to 64)
  • Up to $4,000 in income for permanently disabled taxpayers
  • Unearned income from a dependent included in a parent's AGI

Deductions

Much like the federal system of taxation, Georgia offers state level deductions which can be beneficial to the taxpayer. The standard deduction for Single or Head of Household filers is $2,300, Married filing Single is $1,500, Married filing jointly is $3,000. Any taxpayer over 64 years old or blind is entitled to a standard deduction of $1,300.

The only major difference between state deduction and federal deduction laws for Georgia is that state income taxes other than Georgia's are not able to be deducted, and investment interest on exempt income can't be deducted. Otherwise, higher education savings plan contributions, organ donation expenses, and high deductible health plans can qualify for a state deduction.
