Archbold’s Brooks County Hospital, Grady General Hospital and Mitchell County Hospital have partnered with the Georgia HEART Hospital Program to implement the new Georgia rural hospital tax credit.

Georgia taxpayers can now receive a state income tax CREDIT for 90% of the amount they contribute to qualified rural hospital organizations (up to the limits set forth below).

Taxpayers who itemize deductions on their federal income tax returns will be able to take a charitable income tax deduction for the entire amount of their contributions.

HOW MUCH CAN I CONTRIBUTE FOR A TAX CREDIT?

If you pay Georgia income taxes, you are eligible to receive a tax credit for contributing to any of the Archbold hospitals as follows:

  • Married Filing Jointly: 90% of the amount contributed or $10,000, whichever is less
    • Must contribute $11,111 to receive full $10,000 tax credit
  • Individual Filer: 90% of the amount contributed or $5,000 per tax year, whichever is less
    • Must contribute $5,556 to receive full $5,000 tax credit
  • C-Corporation or Trust: 90% of the amount contributed, up to 75% of its Georgia income tax liability

HOW DO I SIGN UP TO CONTRIBUTE?
