ARIZONA STATE TAX CREDIT

Bag of money

 

The brochure, found on the right, includes a contribution form which will allow you to donate to the extracurricular activities of your choice at any school in the District.

Where Money Goes

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

  • Contributions may be designated to an extracurricular activity of your choice.
  • Organizations can use the money to provide transportation, equipment, uniforms, improving facilities for that organization‚Äôs activities, paying volunteers for giving their time to the organization, etc.
  • Any before or after school activity that require a fee for student participation qualifies as an extracurricular activity.
  • These include: athletics, intramural activities, clubs, organizations or after school field trips.
  • Contributions may be divided among different extracurricular activities to total up to $400 for married couples filing jointly or $200 for singles. This means you can donate to more than one organization and to more than one school.

Arizona Tax Law

  • ARS 43-1089.01 allows married couples filing jointly to take up to $400 in tax credit or $200 for singles if they donate to extracurricular activities in public schools.
  • This tax credit is available to all taxpayers, even if they don’t have children in school.
  • Contributions are donated directly to the school, not to the state or even to the district.
  • Though contributions to public schools have always been tax deductible, a tax credit is subtracted from the amount of taxes you owe.
