What is the Georgia GOAL Tax Credit Program?

Georgia sets aside $120 million in tax credits for Georgia taxpayers, pass-through organizations, and C-corporations that donate funds to qualified Student Scholarship Organizations (SSOs) each year. 
The SSOs, which are nonprofit organizations (like Georgia GOAL), then grant scholarships for current public-school students and kindergarten students to attend Georgia’s independent schools, such as King’s Ridge Christian School.
A KRCS constituent would redirect part of their Georgia state tax liability to GOAL, designating KRCS as their recipient, in exchange for a tax credit.
That donation, in turn, would become a need-based scholarship grant for a student to attend King’s Ridge Christian School.
