Rural Hospital Organization Tax Credit/Georgia Senate Bill 258

Georgia residents and C-corporations have the opportunity make a contribution to Evans Memorial Hospital that can be converted to a Georgia State Income Tax Credit for the 2017 tax year.  Since you would otherwise owe this money to the state, by making a contribution, you can reduce your tax liability while supporting Evans Memorial Hospital.

An individual taxpayer shall be allowed a Georgia income tax credit for qualified contribution as follows:

     - In the case of a single individual or a head of household, 90 percent of the actual amount contributed or $5,000 per tax year,

        whichever is less

     - In the case of a married couple filing a joint return, 90 percent of the actual amount contribution or $10,000 per tax year,

        whichever is less

A C-Corporation or fiduciary taxpayer shall be allowed a Georgia income tax credit for qualified contribution as follows:

     -  90 percent of the actual amount contributed or 75 percent of the corporations or fiduciary's income tax liability, whichever is

         less

      - Pass-through entities are not allowed the qualified rural hospital expense tax credit.

The pre-approval process began January 3, 2017, and will continue until the aggregate annual limit is reached from individual taxpayers, corporations and other entities.  Click here for more information on the donation process.
