Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit Program
Due to economic challenges facing rural hospitals, Georgia taxpayers receive a state income tax credit for 100% of the amount they contribute to qualified rural hospitals, such as Wellstar Sylvan Grove Hospital.
If you pay Georgia income taxes, you are eligible to receive a tax credit for contributing to your designated rural hospital organization as follows:
- Individual Filer – 100% of the amount contributed, up to a limit of $5,000
- Married Filing Jointly – 100% of the amount contributed, up to a limit of $10,000
- Pass-Through Entity – 100% of the amount contributed, up to a limit of $10,000, so long as they would have paid Georgia income tax in that amount on their share of taxable income from the pass-through entity
- C Corporation or Trust – 100% of the amount contributed or 75% of the corporation or trust’s Georgia income tax liability, whichever is less
