How do I claim the Georgia $3000 dependent personal exemption for an unborn child?
If, at any time on or after July 20, 2022 and through December 31, 2022, a taxpayer has an unborn child (or children) with a detectable human heartbeat, a deduction in the amount of $3,000.00 per eligible dependent is available. Note that the unborn dependent exemption cannot be claimed if the child is born during the same tax year.
A direct entry field is available on the GA > General tab > screen 3 (Schedule 1 Subtractions) > line 12 Dependent Personal Exemption for Unborn Children with Detectable Human Heartbeat.
More information is available from House Bill 481, Living Infants and Fairness Equality (LIFE) Act.
