If you have an Alabama income-tax liability, it’s simple to help families in the Archdiocese of Mobile choose a Catholic education for their children and receive credit for up to 50% of your state tax liability.
The Alabama Accountability Act, originally passed by lawmakers in 2013, allows taxpayers to donate to scholarship-granting organizations, known as SGOs, who then distribute scholarships to income-eligible students in Kindergarten through 12th grade to use in participating schools.
Academics+ was created to empower families to choose a Catholic K-12 school that best suits the educational needs of their child. Students do not have to be Catholic to apply.
- Donor has $20,000 in state income tax liability
- Donor makes $10,000 donation to Academics+
- Donor receives $10,000 tax credit toward state income tax.
Donors should contact their personal tax professionals to discuss their specific tax situation.
