  • $10,000 per year (per owner) for owners of a pass-through business (partnership, LLC or S corporation)
  • Up to 75% of all state tax liability for an S corporation, LLC, or C corporation filing at the corporate level.

Business Benefits - Both a Credit AND a Deduction!

Business owners enjoy both the dollar-for-dollar tax credit and ALSO a federal tax deduction, saving tax money.

New Changes for 2022

In 2022, thanks to Georgia bill HB149, businesses who choose to file their taxes at the entity level can enjoy much greater benefits, and contribute to Heritage in a much greater way.

Georgia’s elected officials have just enacted a SALT deduction workaround for pass-through businesses. HB 149 allows your pass-through business to elect to pay state income taxes at the entity level, resulting in significant federal tax savings, as illustrated in this example.

This election also expands the positive impact your business can have through the GOAL program, as your pass-through business can now contribute up to 75% of its annual Georgia income tax liability to GOAL, resulting in a meaningful double-tax benefit of federal tax savings and a Georgia tax credit. See our one-pager entitled Benefit meets Opportunity for further detail.
