Te Georgia QEE ax Credit Program allows individuals, married couples and businesses to claim dollar-or-dollar tax credits on their Georgia income tax or scholarship designations made through a qualifed SSO. Te amount o tax credits that can be taken is limited to the donor’s tax liability or maximum designation allowed, whichever is less. Why should I designate my tax credit to JFCA? Using money you already owe to Georgia and designating it to Christian education is simply good stewardship and impacts the lives o students. The designation is a dollar for dollar tax credit on my Georgia income tax, but what about my Federal Taxes? The good news is you also take the designation as a charitable contribution on your Federal Taxes. You will receive a charitable contribution receipt rom GASSO, Inc. which should be listed on your Schedule C under charitable contributions. Does designating to private schools (JFCA) hurt public schools? No! The Georgia Qualied Educational Expense Credit does not impact unding to public schools. How are the funds distributed to students? JFCA’s Board o Directors established a scholarship policy which distributes the unds. How does the designation process work? It is very simple! Visit georgiasso.us .
