A single individual contributing to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program is eligible to receive a credit against his or her Georgia income tax liability in an amount equal to the amount contributed, or $1,000, whichever is less.

For an individual taxpayer filing a married filing separate return, the credit is limited to the amount contributed, or $1,250, whichever is less.

A married couple contributing to GOAL is eligible to receive a credit against their Georgia income tax liability in an amount equal to the amount contributed, or $2,500, whichever is less.

Any contribution made to GOAL may be designated by the taxpayer for use in providing scholarships to students who desire to attend one or more of our participating schools, a list of which is provided in the Participating Schools section of our website. Once such a designated contribution is made, GOAL will obligate the contribution, less an administration fee agreed to by the participating school, for use in providing scholarships at the school.
