Fostering Success Act

AMAZING NEWS!

As part of Lt. Governor Duncan’s priority to enhance Georgia’s foster care system, the “Fostering Success Act” creates a dollar-for-dollar state income tax credit that generates funds for youth who have recently aged out of the foster system.

Your Taxes, Your Choice!

Would you rather your taxes go to the state of Georgia or provide youth aging out of foster care with tangible support, a sense of belonging and lifelong connection?

How it works:

  • On January 1, 2023, taxpayers electronically submit their intentions to the state of Georgia.
  • Within 30 days, those tax credit applications are approved or denied by the state on a first come first served basis.
  • Once notified of approval, taxpayers have 60 days to make their donations directly to Connections Homes, Inc. Be sure to provide us with your tax certificate number and taxpayer identification number so that we can provide you with a detailed receipt for your tax records.

Tax Credit Limits:

  • Single individual or a head of household: Up to $2,500
  • Married couple filing a joint return: Up to $5,000
  • LLC, S Corporation or Partnership: Up to $5,000
  • Corporations / Others: Up to 10 percent of tax liability

How Do I Apply?

According to the Department of Revenue, taxpayers must log into the Georgia Tax Center and electronically submit Form IT-QFCD-TP1 per these detailed instructions. The application for this new Qualified Foster Child Donation Credit (151) is not yet open.  We believe it will open on January 1, 2023. Sign up below and we will keep you updated so that you don’t miss out on this first come, first served opportunity.
