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

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 (


The secure online process takes about 3 minutes to complete and can be done in

3 easy steps:

  1. Have your full name, address and social security number ready (and the social security number of your spouse, if married filing jointly).

  1. 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.
