What is GaSSO?
In 2008, the Georgia State Assembly enacted the Qualified Education Expense Credit law, thus allowing the creation of non-profit student scholarship organizations to provide financial aid specifically for student scholarships to private schools statewide. Through this program, Georgia taxpayers can designate a portion of their state tax liability to a private school of their choice. By doing so, these taxpayers are then eligible for an income tax credit within the year the tax redirection is made AND a charitable deduction on their federal return. THIS IS NOT A DONATION; it is a re-allocation of your state tax obligation to fund a scholarship, and it can be designated directly to student scholarships at ClearWater Academy. GaSSO is one of the largest, oldest, and most trusted student scholarship organizations in the state and is ClearWater Academy’s chosen partner for scholarship funding through the tax credit program.
