Reserving Tax Credits by Indicating Donations to Scholarship Granting Organizations
Reserving a tax credit requires the use of the Department's online portal for taxpayers, My Alabama Taxes. Taxpayers who have not previously set up an account will need to Sign Up for My Alabama Taxes.
When signing up for MAT, individual taxpayers will need to select Individual Income Tax as their account type and then enter their Social Security number along with their Adjusted Gross Income from the prior year's tax return in order to set up a My Alabama Taxes account.
Once logged into MAT, a taxpayer will need to select SGO Donation from the menu on the left margin of the page and follow a short series of instructions/steps to record their donation and reserve their potion of the credit.
