Tax Credit

Tax Credit

Arizona law ARS 43-1089.01 allows taxpayers to receive a dollor for dollar tax credit of up to $400.00 per calendar year for married filers and up to $200.00 per calendar year for single filers (Single, Head of Household, or Married filing separate return) for contributions that fund extracurricular activities in SUSD schools. A tax credit is a full refund, not a deduction, and you can claim your tax credit when filing your Arizona State Income Tax return. Contributions eligible for a tax credit are donated directly to schools, not to the state or the school district. Contributions can be made by cash, check or online.

For complete instructions, visit the SUSD Tax Credit / Contributions page.
