Fact Sheet: Voucher Dollars Take from the Many to Benefit the Few



Using data from the state’s expenses for the existing tax credit voucher and comparing to population data, it’s clear that vouchers drain money from rural Georgia to benefit a few counties. Fulton County, for example, only has 10 percent of the state’s population, but used over 20 percent of the total tax credit voucher dollars in 2022–a 100 percent increase. Georgia lawmakers should oppose vouchers like SB 233 that continue this dangerous trend.
