Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit Update
On May 2nd, Governor Deal signed a bill into law that increases the Georgia Rural Hospital Tax credit to 100% of donation and allows Sub "S" Corporations to participate.
Dollars being donated are dollars already expended for Georgia taxes.
There is no cost to the donor. 100% of donation will be received back in the form of a tax credit.
Of all dollars collected in Georgia taxes, 82% remain in Atlanta.
The Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit allows you to know where your money is spent and to keep your tax dollars local.
Individuals can donate up to $10,000 if filing as Married Filing Jointly and $5,000 if filing as Single or Head of Household.
C Corporations can donate up to 75% of their Georgia tax liability. Sub S participants and partnerships can obtain a 100% tax credit by donating up to $10,000 to a rural hospital if applied for prior to July 1, so long as they would have paid Georgia income tax on that amount on their share of taxable income from the pass-through entity.
The 100% credit goes into effect July 1 but you can be pre-approved now!
The state of Georgia is capped at $60M and Jeff Davis Hospital is capped at $4M; Two Million for Individuals and Two Million for Corporations.

Jeff Davis Hospital Unveils Renovated Emergency Room
On Tuesday, April 17, at 10:00AM, Jeff Davis Hospital will unveil the newly renovated Emergency Room to the public. The new look of the emergency department is appealing to the eyes and provides enhancements to improve efficiencies to staff and patients. The Emergency Room is often the front door to the hospital for those individuals in need of acute and critical care. Changes have been made to address patient flow and patient comfort. The unit has been modified to facilitate nine treatment beds rather than the previous five and has added a sub-wait area to aid in improving wait times before and after treatment. The Jeff Davis Hospital emergency department provides services for nearly 700 patients a month. The hospital is dedicated to be the safety net provider for Jeff Davis County and the surrounding region. A ribbon cutting will be held at the entrance to the emergency room on Tuesday, April 17 at 9:00AM. The public is welcome to take a tour of the facility at that time.

Hospital Consulting Firm Adopts Benefits Corporation Provisions
The consulting firm that is leading the state-wide effort to implement Georgia's new SB 258 rural hospital organization expense tax credit program has officially amended its Articles of Incorporation to include benefit corporation provisions. In addition to contractually agreeing to contribute its annual net income to a state-wide community foundation in support of rural health care, Portage Charity Advisors, Inc., which is assisting 35 of the 49 rural hospitals that have qualified to receive tax credit-eligible contributions, is now obligated to exclusively pursue public benefits, including the human right to health.
