Georgia Tax Credit Scholarship

The deadline for the 2020 Tax Credit Scholarship is December 15, 2019


In 2010 we awarded 10 scholarships totaling $3,000 from 2 donors.
This year, we awarded 21 scholarships totaling $46,066 from 14 donors!
Thanks to your generous contributions, we more than doubled the number of scholarships with the total being 15 times the first year’s total and a participation rate 6.5 times greater!

THANK YOU!

The Qualified Education Expense Credit program, HB 325 (Tax Credit Scholarship) was passed into law in 2008. Although there have been a few changes, the bills are centered around providing tax credits to Georgia tax-payers who wish to support families seeking educational alternatives to Public School.

YES!  A TAX CREDIT!

You can make a donation to a State registered SSO, and receive a dollar-for-dollar Georgia tax credit, AS WELL AS a possible Federal charitable contribution deduction (depending on your tax situation).

You pledge now, get approved for your amount in January, then pay by the deadline in March. Your refund (dollar for dollar credit) will go toward your 2020 taxes.

Be sure to select BROOKWOOD CHRISTIAN LANGUAGE SCHOOL,
as there are other “Brookwoods”

You do not have to have a child enrolled in school to do this, so share with family & friends!

  • $100,000,000 maximum allocated by the state each year
  • The amount you can give is limited by your tax filing status:
    • Married Filing Jointly: Maximum of $2,500
    • Individual Filer: Maximum of $1,000
    • Married Filing Separately: Maximum of $1,250
  • Individuals who receive pass-through income can contribute up to $10k
  • C-Corps, under the newly adopted IRS ruling, can allocate the cost of funding the approved tax credit as an expense against revenue, reducing taxable income on the Georgia return by 5.75%.
