Information & Forms
As you prepare your Georgia state taxes, take a moment to look at Form 500, line 16. This is the amount you pay in Georgia state taxes. Wouldn’t you like to see some of that money directly benefit Westminster? Under the HB1133 you are able to redirect up to $2,500 if you file jointly and $1,000 if you file separately. A C-Corp can redirect up to 75 percent of their state tax. Through the GOAL Scholarship Program, these funds are made available to new students who have met the admission requirements at Westminster and show financial need after submitting all necessary information to the independent company SSS. This frees up budgeted money for current students who have financial need.
Please consider participating today. There is a state wide cap of $52.4 million that may be met this year. Early participation guarantees your tax dollars can benefit our school. Any Georgia tax payer can participate: parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, etc. There is an easier form and process this year. You can access forms on the website. Also, this year it is estimated that the $52.4 million cap will be reached as early as May 2013. If you would like to participate, we strongly encourage you to do so as soon as possible. The opportunity may not be available later in the year.
