Georgia Private School Tax Credit

Choose Where Your Tax Dollars Go!
 
The Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program allows Student Scholarship Organizations (SSO) to collect funds from redirection of State of Georgia income tax. This program funding will provide support for incoming academically and financially eligible students who are currently enrolled in public school or entering Pre-K through 1st grade. In order to take advantage of this program, SCDS has partnered with Apogee Georgia School Choice Scholarship Fund, a state-approved SSO, to facilitate the process.
 
On behalf of our students, faculty, staff and SCDS families thank to everyone that submitted an application for the Georgia state income tax credit program for 2014. The $58 million cap has been met and the application process has concluded. If you submitted an application, you should be hearing from the Department of Revenue in the next 30 days. If your application has been approved, please remember to fund your credit within 60 days of the date on the approval letter, to make sure our school does not miss out on these valuable funds. Thank you for your support!
