The Georgia Tax Credit program is an incredible opportunity for North Georgia Christian Academy to build it’s scholarship fund and provide a means for more students to be able to attend the school! It is so easy to get involved in and is the easiest way to support our school and directly benefit eligible students.
You receive a dollar for dollar tax credit. It is a tax pre-payment. Anyone or business that pays Georgia Tax can designate their tax dollars. All you are doing is re-designating and switching pots. Instead of the State spending your tax dollars any way they choose, you get to say where it goes.
The kicker to all this is getting the funds into our SSO (Student Scholarship Organization) account to be distributed to students. As part of the House Bill, the State required SSOs to be set up to act as intermediaries between the State and the private schools. Our SSO is Faith First Georgia and their website at www.faithfirstga.org is a great resource to learn more about the program.
This program runs on a calendar year beginning each January and has a $58 million dollar cap state wide.In 2017, the cap was met on January 1st, so it is essential that you fill your paper work out early!
*Before beginning the process, please contact May Pierce at email@example.com or 706-635-6422. We would be happy to walk you through the process!
