The Qualified Education Expense Credit Preapproval Form must be submitted through our Self-Service Portal, Georgia Tax Center (GTC) at https://gtc.dor.ga.gov.
If you have never filed a return with the State of Georgia you must call the Taxpayer Services Call Center at 1-877-423- 6711 to get registered, receive a web login and a temporary password for GTC.
Current filers, with the State of Georgia, that do not already have a GTC log on can visit our informational page by choosing Instructional Documents and GTC Quick Reference Guide on http://dor.georgia.gov/georgia-tax-center-info website.
Listed below are a few additional items as it relates to the Department of Revenue’s QEE application process:
1. Pre-approval letters will be mailed directly to the taxpayer and the SSO. Taxpayers should make sure that the correct address is on file before applying for the credit. Additionally, letters can now be viewed and printed by the taxpayer via GTC.
2. If a taxpayer does not make their contribution within the 60-day window of pre-approval, the taxpayer will need to reapply for the QEE credit. If you have any questions regarding the electronic submission of Qualified Education Expense Credit applications, you can contact the Tax Credits & Incentives Unit at 1-877-423-6711.
