Arizona School Tax Credit
An individual may claim a nonrefundable tax credit for making cash contributions or for certain fees paid to a public school located in Arizona for the support of extracurricular activities or character education programs. The credit is equal to the amount of fees paid or cash contributions, not to exceed $400 for married filing joint filers and $200 for all other filing statuses. Don’t forget – you have until April 15, 2016 to make the contribution and you can chose to apply it on your 2015 or 2016 taxes.
To qualify for the credit, an individual must make contributions or pay fees to a public school for support of extracurricular activities or for character education programs.
What this means is that you can make a contribution to Las Puertas, we will provide you with a receipt and you will receive an Arizona tax credit in the amount that you have donated. This amount will be deducted from the amount of income tax that you owe that State of Arizona at tax time. Read more about what you should know about the Tax Credit here.
To receive an Arizona tax credit, complete Form 322 and Las Puertas’ “Arizona School Tax Credit Donation Form/Receipt” and send with your contribution to:
Las Puertas Community School, 4560 S. Coach Dr, Tucson, AZ 85718
