The state of Georgia uniquely gives its citizens the opportunity to pay their state income taxes – an expense they must incur anyway – by contributing to eligible rural hospitals to improve their financial situation and patient care. Through HEART, all citizens of Georgia have the opportunity to decide how their tax dollars are spent. Georgia taxpayers receive a state income tax credit for 100% of the amount they contribute. C Corporations, trusts or pass-throughs that choose to pay tax at the entity level can contribute up to 75% of their annual tax liability. Interested taxpayers can secure their credit by filing a 2024 HEART tax credit application at Once you make a contribution, Georgia HEART will provide you with the appropriate tax receipt to claim the credit on your 2024 Georgia income tax return.
