Listing Of Rural Counties For Purposes Of The Rural Physician Credit

Regulation 560-7-8-.20 Rural Physician Credit defines a rural county and discusses when the new 2010 Census should be used. Below is a listing of counties that are considered rural counties under both the 2000 and 2010 census. Additionally, for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2003, a physician might also qualify if the physician practices in a rural county and resides in a nonrural county contiguous to the rural county in which the physician practices. View a map of Georgia counties to determine if the county is contiguous. Please see Regulation 560-7-8-.20 for more information.
