Who can donate?
Arizona law allows taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for a single individual or a head of household and $400 for a married couple filing a joint return for donations that benefit students in Arizona public schools. It is not a deduction – it is a tax credit, reducing what your state tax liability dollar for dollar. All Arizona taxpayers are eligible to donate – you do not have to have children attending the school or district you donate to.

What are qualified activities or qualified programs for the purpose of the credit?
Qualified activities and qualified programs include any of the following: extracurricular activities; character education programs, defined in A.R.S. §15-719; standardized testing fees for college readiness; assessment for career and technical preparation programs; cardiopulmonary resuscitation training pursuant to A.R.S.§15-718.01; acquiring capital items as defined in the Uniform System of Financial Records, including those items listed in A.R.S.§15-903, subsection C paragraphs 2 though 8; community school meal programs; student consumable health care supplies, and playground equipment and shade structures for playground equipment.

Must the credit for contributions made or fees paid to a public school be claimed in the year of donation?
No, credit eligible fees paid and contributions made to a public school from January 1 through April 15 of a calendar year may be used as a tax credit to either the current or preceding taxable year.
