What is the Arizona state tax credit for public schools?
Arizona law provides a tax credit for contributions to public schools to support extracurricular activities or character education.
You can help Paradise School 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 in a school 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.
Here’s how it works:
If you qualify for this state tax credit, you may write a check or use your credit card to make a contribution before April 15th. When you file your Arizona state taxes, you then subtract the amount of your contribution from what you owe or add the amount to your refund.
