In assessing state income tax to residents, there are three methods states can use: joint, combined, or some version of the two. Georgia uses the joint system, which taxes married couples on their total income as one amount, which is determined by adding both partner’s incomes together. This system is just like the one used by the federal government to tax income.

Georgia uses the federal adjusted gross income as a base for taxation, though there are some differences in what income sources are subject to exemption from the tax base, along with the different deductions.

Exemptions

Georgia allows the following sources of income to be exempt from being included in taxation:

  • Interest from U.S. Government Bonds
  • Social Security benefits
  • Retirement or pension income up to $65,000 for taxpayers over 65 years old.
  • Up to $4,000 in income for permanently disabled taxpayers
  • Unearned income from a dependent included in a parent’s AGI

Deductions

Just like filing a federal tax return, Georgia allows deductions on state returns, which can help save residents money. The standard deduction is as follows:

  • Single or Head of Household - $2,300
  • Married, Filing Single - $1,500
  • Married, Joint - $3,000
  • Taxpayers over 64 or blind - $1,300

The biggest difference is that at the state level any state income taxes outside of Georgia’s are not eligible for deduction. Investment interest on income that is exempt from taxation also can’t be deducted. On a state return, residents can deduct higher education savings plan contributions, organ donation expenses, and high-deductible health plans.
