If you need a copy of your 2016 Form IT-QEE-SSO1 (tax receipt) and/or your DOR certificate number, please contact Allison Saxby at asaxby@goalscholarship.org.

When you are approved by the Georgia Department of Revenue for a tax credit, and contribute the approved amount to GOAL, you may claim a state income tax credit when you file your Georgia tax return for the year in which you contributed.

Helpful Documents & Information:

  • DOR sets expectations related to timing of refunds

  • Form IT-QEE-SSO1 (your tax receipt from GOAL) must be submitted with your Georgia taxes if you file a paper return, or should simply be kept with your records if you file electronically.
  • Form IT-QEE-TP2 (DOR generic form to ensure you complied with the law) must be submitted with your Georgia taxes if you file a paper return.
