Georgia Income Taxes

Georgia utilizes a relatively simple progressive income tax system, with rates ranging from 1.00% to 5.75%. Higher earners pay higher rates, although Georgia’s brackets top out at $7,000 for single filers and $10,000 for joint filers, which means the majority of full-time workers will pay the top rate.

$5,000 - $7,0004.00%
$7,000 - $10,0005.00%

These are marginal rates, which means they only apply to the dollars within their respective brackets. For example, a person with a taxable income of $20,000 would pay 1% on their first $750 of income, 2% on the next $1,500 (up to $2,250), 3% of the next $1,500 and so on. All income above the $7,000 limit would be taxed at the top rate of 5.75%. Note that married, separate filers face the same rates with different brackets, ranging from $500 up to $5,000.

These rates do not apply to actual earnings, but rather to taxable income. Taxable income takes into account all deductions and exemptions, and is lower than actual income. In Georgia, taxpayers can claim a standard deduction of $5,400 for single filers and $7,100 for joint filers for the 2023 tax year. For tax year 2024, the standard deduction increases to $12,000 for single filers and $24,000 for joint filers.

Note that Atlanta is the only city with its own sales tax, and, when combined with state and county sales taxes, the total sales tax there is 8.90%.

In general, all products in Georgia are subject to the full amount of the rates listed above, but there are some exceptions. Most types of groceries are subject only to the local county rates. Automobiles also have their own rules. Regardless of where in the state they are purchased, vehicles are all subject to a “Title Ad Valorem Tax.” The tax is 7% of the market value (not sales price) of the car.

Georgia typically has two sales tax holidays, during which specific items can be purchased tax-free. The first holiday runs for one day around the end of July. It is targeted for back-to-school shopping and applies to most clothing, school supplies and computers. The second holiday runs later in the year and applies to certain energy- and water-efficient appliances.

Georgia Property Tax

Since counties and cities collect real estate taxes and assess property values according to their own set of rules, the best way to evaluate property taxes is based on the amounts homeowners report paying as a percentage of actual home values. This is called the effective property tax rate.

For the entire state of Georgia, the effective property tax rate is 0.90%, which is less than the national average of 1.02%. That varies by county, however. In Brooks County, on the Florida border, the effective property tax rate is 1.42%.

Georgia Gas Tax

Georgia charges a tax of 31.2 cents per gallon of gasoline and 35 cents per gallon of diesel. Gov. Brian Kemp suspended these taxes in September 2023 in response to inflation, but the suspended rates expired at the end of November.

Georgia Estate Tax

As of July 1st, 2014, the state of Georgia has no estate tax.
