Click the orange button to the left to submit your request for the 2023 Georgia Qualified Education Expense Tax Credit before the deadline of December 31, 2022.

Make Your Tax Dollars Count!

The State of Georgia will give taxpayers a dollar-for-dollar Qualified Education Expense (QEE)  Tax Credit when they donate to Pay it Forward Scholarships. Tax credits are available on a first come, first served basis. Pay it Forward Scholarships submits the request on behalf of the taxpayer on the first business day of January. Taxpayers receive written approval guaranteeing the tax credit before they ever donate! 

Even though the cap was raised to $120 million for the 2023 tax credit season, with the limits also being increased, as well as, the cap being met so early in 2022 (April 27, 2022), Pay it Forward Scholarships is once again estimating that in the new year - 2023 GA QEE Tax Credits will be completely reserved on the first business day of January, and that donors may be approved at a pro-rated amount, likely in the range of 80-90% of the amount requested.

Select the school where you would like to fund scholarships, and the funds will be equally divided among all approved, eligible students who have a current and complete application with Pay it Forward Scholarships. When you donate, you will receive a dollar-for-dollar Georgia QEE tax credit and a federal charitable deduction.

Historical Information on the QEE Tax Credit

In 2015-2018, the cap was $58 million dollars for Georgia's QEE Tax Credit and credits were completely allocated in just one day and all donors were equally approved at a pro-rated amount of what they had requested. 

In 2019 -2022, the cap was raised to $100 million dollars for Georgia's Tax Credit  and we saw taxpayers once again get approved for 100% of amounts requested. In 2021 tax credits were available all the way through December. In 2022, tax credits were completely allocated by April 27, 2022, meaning no additional credits are available until 2023.
