MARIETTA - The City of Marietta would like to ensure all Marietta residents are aware of Georgia's PEACH Education Tax Credit. This program offers an exciting opportunity to advance public education and foster excellence for students across Georgia. Individuals and corporations can support Georgia’s K-12 public education students at no additional cost to you by securing a PEACH Education Tax Credit. Contributing to the PEACH Education Tax Credit provides taxpayers with a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Georgia state income taxes, meaning you are able to apply your tax dollars to support innovation in Georgia’s K-12 public schools. The tax credit is capped at $5 million and is approved on a first-come, first-served basis.
For example, if you apply and are approved for a $1,000 PEACH Education tax credit, $1,000 of your income tax payment to the state of Georgia may be donated to the Georgia Foundation for Public Education and will be used to support innovation in Georgia’s K-12 public schools. The PEACH Education Tax Credit allows you the unique opportunity to choose where your state tax dollars go. Certainly, public schools are funded by the state’s tax dollars, but, through PEACH (previously referred to as the Qualified Education Donation, QED), you can play a vital role in spurring innovation in Georgia schools while receiving your tax credit.
Visit the website to apply today! You will be able to specific dedicate the funds to the Marietta City School system.
