SA Panel: US state starts recognizing fetus as dependent on income tax


The Georgia State Revenue Agency, in the USA, now allows taxpayers to consider fetuses as their dependents on income tax. The condition for this is that they already have detectable heartbeats.

For each fetus it will be possible to request an exemption in the amount of US$ 3,000 (about R$ 15,800).

Also according to the agency, if requested, the taxpayer must provide medical records or other supporting documentation.

The decision comes after the country’s Supreme Court stopped considering abortion as a constitutional right, which made room for states to adopt local vetoes.
