Kemp seeks $1.6B in Georgia tax rebates worth $250 or $500

ATLANTA (AP) — Gov. Brian Kemp wants to use $1.6 billion of Georgia's $2.2 billion in spare cash to give rebates in April on state income taxes. The Republican told the Georgia Chamber of Commerce that he wants to give a $250 rebate to every single person filing state income taxes and $500 to every household filing jointly. The money would come from part of the huge budget surplus the state ran last year. Kemp also proposed $5,000 pay raises last week for employees of state agencies. And he wants to push his proposed $2,000 pay raise for teachers into the current budget year by paying a onetime $2,000 bonus now.
