In 2008, the Georgia General Assembly passed into law House Bill 1133 which allows individuals and corporations to choose to redirect a portion of their Georgia state income tax dollars for need based financial aid. The law provides for the creation of Student Scholarship Organizations (SSOs) to which Georgia individual and corporate taxpayers can contribute in exchange for a state income tax credit
These are tax dollars that you are already paying to the state. This tax credit allows you to take up to $2,500 of your Georgia state income tax, and gives you a dollar for dollar income tax credit against your Georgia state income tax liability.
How can I participate?
Anyone who pays Georgia income tax is eligible to participate.

Any Georgia taxpayer is eligible to redirect a portion of his/her tax dollars to St. George’s Episcopal School.
