Georgia Cancer Research Fund

Your tax filing can help fight cancer

When you prepare your next Georgia income tax return – please consider adding a few dollars to Line 33 to support the Georgia Cancer Research Fund.

Those funds go straight to researchers who are hard at work in Georgia labs finding new ways to fight cancer. They’re developing new treatments and new tools for diagnosis – and they’re grateful for Georgians who choose to support them. 

It’s easy to do: Just enter any amount (over $1) on Line 33 of Georgia’s Income Tax Form 500. The state’s Department of Revenue will factor this amount into your tax refund or liability – so you don’t have to write a separate check or take any other action.
