Support your school through Georgia Student Scholarship Organization
In 2008 the Georgia Generally Assembly passed House Bill 1133, allowing individuals and corporations to receive a Georgia income tax credit for redirecting their state income tax to the GaSSO Scholarship Program.
Georgia SSO uses these contributions to provide private school scholarships to students who are automatically eligible to enroll in PreK, kindergarten, first grade or who are transferring from a Georgia public school.
This helps you lower out of pocket tuition. Eligibility
You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of your taxes to help Georgia education at no cost? When you redirect your Georgia taxes to Georgia SSO, you can designate that the contribution be used to provide scholarships at your school. Thus, your school is able to:
· Increase the financial aid that it can offer students
· Increase school enrollment
· Increase the funds available to improve educational offerings
What is the maximum amount I can contribute?
· Single individual or head of household - $2,500;
· Married couple filing joint return - $5,000;
· Married couple filing separate return- $2,500;
