Assist DCS Students with SSO Funds
New legislation can assist DCS Students with SSO Funds.
If you are a LLC, S Corp, or PC and would like to know how you can redirect some of your Georgia State Tax Liability - please contact me!  Joe Bradley, jbradley@dominionmail.org

 

As you may or may not know, HB 283 increased the maximum donation amount for LLCs, S Corps and PCs. The new maximum is up to $10,000 of the amount contributed, as long you have paid GA income tax in that amount on that share of taxable income from the S Corp, LLC or PC.

 

The Dept. of Revenue is currently pre-approving the new amounts.  If they have already applied and donated, they can re-apply for the additional amount.

 

This can be such a blessing for our students.
