Tax Credit Donations

What is the Arizona state tax credit for public schools?

An individual may claim a credit for making contributions or paying fees to a public school for support of extracurricular activities or character education programs. Tax credit money collected throughout the year at Sacaton help to fund special student activities such as the elementary school’s Girl Scouts, Theater Club, Student Council, Science Club, etc. If you choose to make a tax credit donation, you can specifically request what club receives your donation.

The Details

Arizona law provides a tax credit for contributions to public schools to support extracurricular activities or character education.

You can help Sacaton students and possibly lower your tax bill by making a donation.

The state tax credit is available to ALL qualifying individual Arizona state taxpayers. You do not need to have a child enrolled at Sacaton to take advantage of this state tax credit. It is always best to consult a tax adviser to see if you qualify for the dollar-for-dollar credit.

A tax credit is different from a deduction, because you may subtract the whole contribution from your Arizona state tax bill. An individual may contribute as much as $200, and a couple filing jointly may contribute as much as $400 to a public school and receive the money back in the form of a tax credit.

Please note: To be eligible for a state tax credit for the previous year, your contribution must be received or postmarked by April 15th. ECA donations are not refundable.
