Arizona Tax Credit Program
school tax credit

The Arizona Tax Credit is a program to help schools fund extracurricular programs through tax-deductible donations. Couples filing jointly can donate up to $400.00, or those filing individually can donate up to $200.00. The state credits this money towards your tax liability, dollar for dollar. Our school uses this income to fund many clubs, programs, and activities. If you’d like to donate your tax credit money to our school, we’ve included the form you’ll need to the left. After you fill it out, bring it into our office, and we’ll take it from there.

Please view our video for more details.

 

Thank you in advance for supporting our school!


Reasons to Donate

  • The State of Arizona has a law that benefits taxpayers and schoolchildren alike. A.R.S. 43-1089 allows a tax credit of $200 for individuals and $400 for married couples filing jointly, for fees or donations paid to a public school in support of extracurricular activities.
  • It costs you nothing. Donating gives you a say in how your tax dollars are spent and reduces your tax bill by the amount that you donate. If you decide to donate $400 to an eligible school activity, you will reduce your Arizona state tax bill by $400. If you expect a refund, it will be $400 higher. If you don’t pay state income tax, you can’t reduce your liability below $0.
  • There are many programs in need of support. Last year, taxpayers helped cover the costs for kindergarten, after-school programs, band, orchestra, sports and art programs, as well as admission to plays, concerts, parks, museums, and nature camps. Simply put, tax credit donations make possible a wide range of learning opportunities that our children would not otherwise have. You don’t have to have a child in the school district to benefit from this tax credit.
