Georgia will now allow residents to claim their unborn child as a dependent on state taxes
· Aug 3, 2022 ·

This is awesome news:

Yes, now that we've decided in America that unborn children are people too, we're finally starting to see some of the benefits.

The state Department of Revenue on Monday released new guidance related to Georgia's anti-abortion law, known as "Living Infant and Fairness Equality (LIFE) Act," which bars doctors from terminating pregnancies beyond six weeks, with some exceptions.

"In light of the June 24, 2022, U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization and the July 20, 2022, 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in Sistersong v. Kemp, the Department will recognize any unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat…as eligible for the Georgia individual income tax," the statement read.

Hooray, and hooray.

One could argue that during pregnancy that child is about as dependent as it gets. And moms — my goodness, moms — you go through a whole lot of craziness during those nine months, and I don't even know the half of it.

So good on Georgia for making this happen.

According to the revenue agency's guidance, a taxpayer who has an "unborn child … with a detectable human heartbeat" after July 20 may list the embryo as a dependent on their 2022 tax return.

Under the new rules, residents can claim a deduction of $3,000 for each "unborn child."

I'm not even gonna talk about how mad this made the libs, simply because I'm too happy to care.

But I did see this response which made me think a little.

And, well, once again I look to my state government and I say:




So yeah, people should be happy that Georgia is doing this.

And I hope more states follow suit.
