ARLINGTON CHRISTIAN SCHOOL PARTICIPATING IN GEORGIA GOAL PROGRAM
The state of Georgia has created an opportunity for taxpayers to redirect a portion of their Georgia state income taxes to improve education opportunities in Georgia. Arlington Christian School is partnering with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a student scholarship organization established through House Bill 1133 in 2008.
Our partnership with Georgia GOAL allows you to redirect a portion of your Georgia tax liability – up to $2,500 for married couples filing jointly, $1,250 for married filing separately, and $1,000 for individual filers. This money comes to Arlington Christian School as a scholarship for a scholar wishing to move to private school from a public school.
Focused on assisting families who choose to move their children out of public education, this program provides opportunities for more scholars to receive a private, Christian education. That’s why it is important that alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends of Arlington participate in this program.
Taxpayers who redirect their state income tax dollars to GOAL receive a tax credit for their designated amount and/or a charitable deduction for federal tax purposes, provided they itemize. This redirection may be made at any time during the current tax year by writing your check and following the process as directed at https://www.goalscholarship.org/for_donors/tax_contribution_type.asp
However, you will not receive your tax benefit until you file your Georgia state taxes for the preceding year.
C-Corporations may contribute up to 75% of their Georgia tax liability to Georgia GOAL on behalf of Arlington Christian School. Please inform your contacts at Georgia corporations about this effortless way to support our school. If you have a suggestion of a company we should contact, please let us know.
