Here are the 3 ways that donors can apply for the tax credit.
1. If you, as a school, want to submit your donor forms for your donors, you can collect the completed IT-QEE-TP1 forms from your donors, send them to me, I will input them, and let you know when the approval letter is posted. If this is the option you choose, please contact me to discuss.
2. The donor can go on line https://gtc.dor.ga.gov/_/#1, register for an account and wait for the DOR to process their registration request. Once they are notified of registration, they can submit their form on line. They still have to fill out the IT-QEE-TP1 form, sign it and attach it. The instructions will walk them through it. The first time they register they will need to know the prior years Federal Adjusted Gross Income. They will print the approval letter from the website, send it and a check to me. (I registered today as an individual and it asked for my 2010 Federal Adjusted Gross Income.)
3. The donor can mail their completed IT-QEE-TP1 form to the DOR, address is on page 2 of the form, wait for their approval letter, send me a copy of the approval letter and the check within the 60 day window.
In all 3 instances the IT-QEE-TP1 form has to be filled out correctly and signed by the donor before it is submitted. The donor still has to make the donation within 60 days of the date on the check.
