*Note* The online system to collect your tax credit contributions is down for maintenance. Individuals who wish to donate can do so in person at the Peoria Unified School District Administration Center or at their local Peoria Unified school.
Tax credit donations allow families to directly help fund extracurricular activities such as outdoor education, field trips, athletics, clubs, tutoring or character education. These contributions can be directed to a specific student’s participation extracurricular activities such as before-and-after school care (KidZone), field trips, athletic participation fees, Career & Technical Education and much more. This year, capital items have been added to the list of eligible tax credit purposes.
One hundred percent of the donation goes directly to the school program or student selected by the donor, allowing individuals to provide funding to programs for which they are most passionate. If a donor does not have a program they would like to fund, they may designate their contribution to the school(s) with the greatest need. In addition to helping our students succeed, donors will receive a dollar-for dollar return during tax season making it easy to give back and get back.
Arizona tax law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows individual taxpayers a tax credit up to $200, or up to $400 as a married couple filing a joint return. If married taxpayers file separate returns, each spouse may claim half of the credit that would have been allowed on a joint return. In return, the donor can get the exact amount back from the state when filing a return. A tax credit may only be used to the extent it reduces a tax liability to zero.
