Georgia did not conform to the federal exclusion of unemployment income for tax year 2020.
What if I already filed before the federal exclusion in March 2021?
You will not need to make any changes to the Georgia return.
What if I filed and the unemployment was excluded from the Georgia return?
Taxpayers will need to submit an amended return (Form 500X) if the unemployment income was originally excluded on the return.
How do I add the unemployment back to my 2020 state return?
This is automatically added back to the Resident return.
What if I have to add the amount back manually on my Resident return?
