Budget & Taxes

The state budget is as a reflection of Georgia’s priorities. Taxes are essential to ensuring Georgia can provide important services for its residents and to make strategic investments that promote job growth. A balanced approach to the state budget that includes revenue increases, rather than relying only on spending cuts, is crucial to growing our state’s economy and expanding shared opportunity for all Georgians.
