Your Taxes—Your Choice: Impact the Boys

and Girls at Southwest Georgia Academy .

As a taxpayer in the state of Georgia, did you know you have the ability to impact

the boys and girls at Southwest Georgia Academy through the Georgia Education Expense Tax Credit program? Since 2008, it has allowed individuals, limited liability and

corporate taxpayers in the state of Georgia to prepay and redirect a portion of their annual Georgia tax obligation to an independent school of their choice, such as Southwest Georgia Academy. The tax credits are as follows:

  • A single individual can redirect up to $1,000
  • A married couple filing individually can redirect up to $1,250 each
  • A married couple filing jointly can redirect up to $2,500
  • An individual who is a member of a limited liability company (LLC),
  • shareholder of an “S” Corporation, or partner in a partnership (passthrough
  • entity) can redirect up to $10,000 per partner
  • A “C” corporation can redirect up to 75% of their annual Georgia tax
  • obligation

The redirected and pre-paid portion of the Georgia tax obligation is submitted to a Student Scholarship Organization (such as GaSSO) that, in turn, remits the funds to

Southwest Georgia Academy. These funds provide financial assistance to the boys and girls atSouthwest Georgia Academy School. Our SSO of choice is the Georgia Student Scholarship Organization - GaSSO (
