Georgia’s tax structure will go unchanged for at least another year. The controversial House Bill 385, which included sweeping changes recommended by the 2010 Special Council on Tax Reform and Fairness for Georgia, did not make it out of committee by “Crossover Day” in the General Assembly March 16.
That was the final day a bill entered in one house of the legislature could be approved and sent to the other house.
“HB 385 did not pass,” noted Rep. Tommy Benton. “We’ll have to vote on it, so we’ll vote on it next year.”
