All 2017 Tax Credits have been claimed!

Signed into law in 2008, HB 1133 is legislation that permits Georgia taxpayers to receive a state income tax credit for amounts contributed to qualified student scholarship organizations (SSOs). Bethesda Academy partners with the state’s leading SSO, The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program. Learn more by visiting www.goalscholarship.org.

This is a win-win program that allows Georgia taxpayers to redirect the tax dollars they are already paying to offer scholarships to students. There is a maximum amount of $58 million in tax credits available for the entire state of GA.

Since 2010, more than 180 GOAL Scholarships have been awarded to Bethesda’s students as part of our financial aid package. This funding is vital  to many of our families seeking a private education for their son.  So, not only is the funding critical to our families, but the timing is critical to GA taxpayers.

In 2011, the cap was met in November.
In 2012, the cap was met in August.
In 2013, the cap was met in May.
