Donate to the Arizona Tax Credit

Posted by Community Relations Department at 12/26/2012

It’s not quite tax season, but it is Arizona Education Tax Credit season until December 31. The Arizona Education Tax Credit program allows individuals to contribute to student programs and activities and receive a dollar-for dollar tax credit, if they donate by December 31, 2012.  Single taxpayers or a head of household can receive a credit of up to $200, and married couples filing jointly, can receive up to a $400 credit on their 2012 taxes.  The tax credit is available to all taxpayers, not just those with children in public schools.  This program has benefited thousands of Phoenix Union students over the years that might not otherwise have had the financial resources to participate in high school activities such as clubs, athletics, performing arts, field trips, or competitions.      To find out more about the Arizona Education Tax and make a contribution online, go to  www.phoenixunion.org/taxcredit.
