Tax Credit Information

Below you will find answers to questions we’re frequently asked about the Arizona state tax credit. If you have additional questions, please call (520) 281-8282, ext. 8270.


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. A tax credit is different from a deduction, because you may subtract the whole contribution from your Arizona state tax bill. For specific tax questions, you will want to consult with your tax advisor.

How do you define extracurricular activities?

Extracurricular means any optional, non-credit educational or recreational activity that supplements the education program of our schools. Some examples are sports, band, and clubs.

Who can participate in the tax credit program?

This program is available to all Arizona individual taxpayers, regardless of whether or not they have children in school. An individual can contribute up to $200, or a couple filing jointly can contribute up to $400.

How can I make a contribution?

At the side of this page, you’ll find a Tax Credit Contribution form. Print the form, fill it out, and mail it to the address listed on the form. Our school offices also have hard copies of the tax credit form available for you to pick up.

When is the deadline?

You will need to submit your application, available in both English and Spanish, by April 15, 2020, to qualify for the 2019 tax credit.

Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman announced the extended closure of Arizona schools until the end of the 2019–2020 school year as a necessary step in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

Although all school sites and activities will remain closed through the end of the school year, the at-home learning opportunities which have been communicated by your student's school will continue as planned. 

Meal services for students will also continue throughout the remainder of the school year.
