Arizona Revised Statute §43-1089.01 allows each state taxpayer to donate up to $200 per year to public schools in
support of extracurricular and character education activities and claim a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit. Married
couples filing joint tax returns may donate and claim a tax credit of up to $400 per year ($200 per person). Those who
are married and filing separately each qualify for a $200 maximum state tax credit.
A tax credit will allow you to reduce the amount of your income tax liability to the state (your state tax bill) or increase
your refund from the state. Either way, you are sending tax dollars directly to the school of your choice instead of the
Arizona Department of Revenue. Check with your tax consultant to see if you could also be eligible for a deduction on
your federal taxes to the Internal Revenue Service
