 HB 32 Teacher Recruitment Tax Credit


​​​During the 2021 legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 32 to establish an income tax credit for teachers of high-need subject areas who agree to teach in high-need subject areas in qualified rural schools or low-performing schools. Eligible teachers, recently hired to teach in a high-need subject area at a Participating School, who are selected to participate in the Teacher Tax Credit Program will receive a $3,000 tax credit for five consecutive school years. This means selected applicants will be able to deduct $3,000 per year from the amount of state income tax they owe for each of the five years they remain eligible for participation in the program.
