Known as House Bill 387, the proposal would lower the income tax rate from 6 percent to 4.5 percent for Georgians.
Among other changes, it would give tax breaks to agriculture and manufacturers, tax the private sales of cars and would mean getting back less from itemized deductions.
Some lawmakers say it would attract big business to Georgia. Others counter that it'd be a blow to the middle class.
Charles Alexander, of Valdosta, hopes it passes."I am for it because it brings more big business to the state of Georgia," he said. "It brings more jobs to the state of Georgia, more employment for the state of Georgia," he added.
Other Georgians, like Aaron Strickland, of Valdosta, are weary that it'd hurt the middle class. "Big business gets enough breaks as it is. Yeah, I think more breaks need to be given to individuals than big companies."
Lawmakers are tweaking the bill and making last minute changes. It could hit the House floor at any time.
