There may still be 2022 GA QEE Tax Credits available!

If you are interested in applying for a 2022 tax credit, please schedule a phone appointment with our staff so we can request the tax credit on your behalf today. 

Make Your Tax Dollars Count!

The State of Georgia will give you a dollar-for-dollar Qualified Education Expense (QEE)  Tax Credit when you donate to Pay it Forward Scholarships. Tax credits are available on a first come, first served basis.

In 2015-2018, the $58 million in QEE Tax Credits were completely reserved on the first day of each year, and donors received pro-rated approvals. This tax credit is VERY popular with Georgia taxpayers!

In 2019, Georgia increased the QEE Tax Credit cap from $58 million to $100 million dollars per year. In 2019, 2020, and even in 2021, we were expecting the tax credits to be completely reserved on the first business day of January, and donors to be approved for a pro-rated amount of the amount requested. However, we submitted all of our tax credit requests each of these years and our donors were approved for 100% of the tax credit amount requested, and tax credits remain available on a first come, first served basis until all $100 million is reserved. If you are interested in inquiring if a 2021 GA QEE Tax Credit is still available, you must contact our office directly.

In 2022, we are once again estimating that the QEE Tax Credits will be completely reserved on January 3, 2022, and that donors will be approved at a pro-rated amount, likely in the range of 80-90% of the amount requested, which is much better than in the years 2018 and prior. 

Here are the maximum QEE Tax Credit amounts Georgia taxpayers can reserve:

  • $1,000 Single Individuals
  • $2,500 Married Couples, Filing Joint
  • $10,000 per Small Business Owner, S-Corps, Partnerships, & LLCs
  • C-Corps 75% of total state tax liability

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.
