• Rather than sending your state income tax dollars to the Department of Revenue, why not use them to help provide a Tiftarea education to a deserving student?

    In 2008 the Georgia General Assembly passed the "Education Expense Tax Credit" law which allows taxpayers to redirect a portion of their Georgia state income taxes to a qualifying student scholarship organization (SSO). Our SSO partner, Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program uses these contributions to award financial aid to students with a demonstrated financial need who wish to attend Tiftarea Academy by enrolling in Pre-K, Kindergarten, or first grade or by transfer from a public school. 

    Individual and corporate taxpayers receive a tax CREDIT against their Georgia income tax liability and a federal charitable tax deduction for amounts contributed to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program. Tax credit limits based on filing status: 

    • Married filing jointly up to $2500 per tax year 
    • Married filing separate up to $1250 per tax year 
    • Single or Head of Household up to $1000 per tax year 
    • Owners of S-Corps, LLCs, & Partnerships up to $10,000 per tax year 
    • C Corporations up to 75% of their total tax liability per tax year
