For 2019, the amount allotted by the state has increased to $100 million! Additionally, Faith First Georgia is now GaSSO (Georgia Student Scholarship Organization). You may visit their website at www.georgiasso.us.
Update on 2018 Tax Credits:
To those who participated in the 2018 tax credit, Thank You! On January 2, 2018, we were able to submit all of the pre-approval forms online with the Georgia Department of Revenue. All of the $58 million allotted by the state was used on that same day, January 2. In fact, the state received pre-approval requests totaling over $105 million. As a result, all pre-approvals submitted were prorated.
Next Opportunity to Participate - January 1, 2019!
Taxpayers can participate as follows:
- Married Filing Jointly: up to $2,500 per tax year
