Does This Work?
Alabama Tax Credit | SGO Scholarships
Lincoln Academy Scholarships: The Alabama Accountability Act (AAA) allows you to use an Alabama Tax Credit to provides scholarships for students who are zoned for failing public schools to attend qualified private schools. Under some circumstances, it allows for lower-income students to enter a qualified private school, like Lincoln Academy in Huntsville Al. Through this legislation, taxpayers can receive an Alabama TAX CREDIT while designating half of their state income tax liability (up to $50,000 for individuals and no maximum for C corporations) to a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). In other words, you can provide a scholarship at NO cost to you!
