Tax Credit Information

Arizona allows state income taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $400 ($200 for single filers and $400 for joint filers) for contributions made to public schools to support extracurricular activities. This tax credit is available to all taxpayers whether or not they have children in the public schools.

The kind of programs you can help fund range from sports and band fees to lab sciences and art projects. Yuma School District One is committed to maintaining these activities for the enjoyment and enrichment of our students. Unfortunately, our funding is not sufficient to offset all of the associated costs. As a result, these programs must depend on fees from students. And that’s where you can help.

To claim your Arizona State Tax Credit, just make a donation in an amount you feel comfortable contributing. Whatever amount you give will be offset by a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for the applicable tax year, up to $400 per tax return! The schools and programs you support are entirely your choice. The law simply states that your donation must go directly to a local school for the use of extracurricular activities.

By making an Arizona Tax Credit donation, everyone wins. Schools receive the money for extracurricular activities, and donors receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit (not a deduction).
