In 2008, the State of Georgia passed House Bill 1133 which allows interested tax payers to receive a tax credit for donations made to approved Student Scholarship Organizations (SSO). In essence, this legislation allows you to redirect a portion of your Georgia income taxes (up to $2,500 married filing jointly, $1,250 single) to the eligible private school of your choice through the SSO. In compliance with this legislation, these scholarships are available for new Konos students seeking private school enrollment. The program is targeted towards low to moderate income families who are looking for an alternative to public education.
