YOUR TAXES, YOUR CHOICE! Your participation in the GOAL program makes a remarkable impact on deserving families and on the overall financial health of our school. Submit your 2022 GOAL Tax Credit Application today at www.goalscholarship.org
In exchange for contributions to Georgia GOAL taxpayers receive a 100-percent state income tax credit! Given the new federal limits on the deductibility of state and local income taxes, this is significant! By contributing to GOAL, you are making a charitable contribution, and may gain back a deduction, thereby reducing your federal tax burden.
The Georgia legislature has nearly doubled the available credits, alleviating the “oversubscription” problem of past years.
This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to Georgia GOAL for a 100-percent Georgia income tax credit, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Benedictine education. You have the opportunity to make this our school’s best year yet in raising GOAL funds!

Good News from the IRS
IRS proposed regulations provide that a payment made by a pass-through business to Georgia GOAL for a designated school like Benedictine may qualify for an ordinary and necessary business expense deduction, even where the owners receive a state income tax credit for the payment.
Businesses can deduct payments relevant to their trade or business that are made with the reasonable expectation of financial return commensurate with (but, according to the IRS, not necessarily equal to) the amount of the payment. The business expense deduction reduces the taxable net income of the pass-through business owner at the federal level, resulting in federal tax savings.
