Individual taxpayers are able to redirect 50% of their Alabama state tax liability to Scholarships for Kids and receive a dollar-to-dollar tax credit in return. The annual maximum tax credit available on an individual return is $50,000.
The Alabama Accountability Act currently establishes an annual $30 million statewide limit on the tax credits. The credits are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and may be carried forward for 3 years.
Those who make quarterly tax payments can donate 50% of each quarter’s tax liability to Scholarships for Kids with no penalty, not to exceed $50,000 annually, and receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit.
In all cases, please consult with your tax advisor. If you have questions or need assistance making your gift, please contact Mary Claire McDougald at (205)769-0278 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
