Tax Credits

Learn how your State tax liability can Provide Scholarships!

Through the Alabama Accountability Act, up to 100% of your Alabama income tax liability can go towards providing scholarships to our qualified  students at Banks Academy.

We can probably agree that there needs to be a better way for students to be educated in the City of Birmingham. The AAA legislation allows someone like you to take ALL of what you are required to pay in Alabama Income tax and send it to Scholarships for Kids. (The law allows for up to $100,000 for individuals and Pass Through Entities such as LLCs. There is no maximum if a C Corporation.) Once the money is received by SFK, Banks Academy can apply for those funds to be used to pay for our student’s tuition. Hence, the student receives a scholarship to pay for their education.
