In addition to receiving a tax credit against their Georgia income taxes, taxpayers who itemize their deductions may take a charitable deduction on their federal income tax returns for amounts contributed to Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, Inc. However, in calculating their Georgia taxable income on their Georgia state income tax returns, taxpayers who take the tax credit for their contributions to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program will have to add back to Georgia taxable income the corresponding amount taken as a federal charitable income tax deduction. Although GOAL recommends that taxpayers consult with their tax advisors, GOAL is providing taxpayer filing guidance in connection with the taking the qualified education expense credit on their Georgia returns.
