Georgia Education Expense Tax
Your Taxes—Your Choice:
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:
- Individual Filers- $2,500
- Married Filing Jointly- $5,000
- S-Corps & LLCs - $25,000
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 students at Southwest Georgia Academy. Our SSO of choice is the Georgia Student Scholarship Organization - GaSSO (http://www.georgiasso.com).
The secure online process takes about 3 minutes to complete and can be done in
3 easy steps:
- Determine your tax filing status (please see above).
- Have your full name, address and social security number ready (and the social security number of your spouse, if married filing jointly).
- Click here to be taken to GaSSO’s secure website to complete the form.
In January 2023, you will receive a letter from GaSSO letting you know how
much funding was approved by the state of Georgia and what amount you are
eligible to contribute. You will then be given a deadline to submit your
contribution, which can be easily done on GaSSO’s secure website. Once your
payment has been received, GaSSO will send you a confirmation of your tax
credit for your records and to share with your tax preparer.
