About The Tuition Tax Credit Program – and GaSSO
In 2008, the Georgia General Assembly passed the original legislation creating the Georgia Qualified Education Expense (QEE) Tax Credit Program. Under this program, individuals and corporations can make tax-credit donations to authorized non-profit organizations which can then fund scholarships at private schools in Georgia, including schools recommended by the donors.

Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the Georgia QEE Credit Program?
This program was created by the Georgia General Assembly in 2008 to help expand school choice in Georgia and give Georgians more control over how their education dollars are spent. Within certain limits, it allows individuals, families and businesses to make dollar-for-dollar tax credit donations to private schools, including private schools they designate.
- Who can make such tax-credit donations?
Scholarships are awarded based upon the criteria set up by the participating private schools (merit, need, academics,and/or other criteria). Contact your school of choice to understand their criteria.
The amount of any scholarship received by an eligible student or eligible pre-kindergarten student shall be excluded from taxable net income for Georgia income tax purposes.
