Georgia residents can now claim embryos as dependents on their state taxes.

The state's revenue department made the announcement this week saying...

"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 dependent exemption," the department said in a statement.

A taxpayer who "has an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat,” can claim a dependent on their 2022 taxes.
