The great state of Georgia is the second largest population of those who do not pay federal income taxes. When Daniel Bukszpan of CNBC took time to find out where the 47 percent who do not pay federal taxes live he points out Georgia is the second largest state in the union with the most people who do not pay federal income taxes.
From Bukszpan’s article:
Total Returns: 4,589,611
Returns With Income Tax Liability: 2,639,561
Returns With No Income Tax Liability: 1,950,050
Georgia is home to nearly 2 million households that pay no income tax. This puts it near the top of the list of states where the 47 percent reside.
“Georgia is number two for returns with no taxable income,” Kasprak said. “It’s also fourth for returns receiving the refundable child tax credit.”
Bukszpan points out that 8 of the top 10 states in the 47% are red states , one leans towards Obama and one is a swing state. Texas and Florida have larger populations not paying but smaller over all percentages.
Does this help out the current POTUS? Stay tuned to the same bat channel friends.
