Starting today, Georgia families will be receiving monthly tax cuts of up to $300 per child as part of the American Rescue Plan. Thanks to President Biden and Democrats – and no thanks to Republicans in Congress, who unanimously opposed this relief plan – this tax cut will provide additional relief of up to $1,600 per child to the families of 2,274,000 children in Georgia, helping lift 171,000 children out of poverty.
On Wednesday, the Democratic Party of Georgia hosted a virtual press conference with Chair Congresswoman Nikema Williams and working moms from across the state to highlight the monthly tax cuts. Speakers highlighted how President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Democrats delivered this historic tax cut for working families in Georgia – while Brian Kemp, Georgia Republicans, and the entire GOP Senate field opposed this critical boost to the middle class.
