Arizona Tax Credit

Here's your chance to help our schools without it costing you a thing.

Arizona allows state income taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $400 for contributions made to public schools to support extracurricular activities. This tax credit is available to all taxpayers whether or not they have children in the public schools. 
 
The kinds of programs you can help fund range from sports and band fees to lab sciences and art projects. The Yuma Union High School District is committed to maintaining these activities for the enjoyment and enrichment of our students. Unfortunately, our funding is not sufficient to offset all of the associated costs. As a result, these programs must depend on fees from students. And that's where you can help.

To claim your Arizona State Tax Credit, just make a donation in an amount you feel comfortable contributing. Whatever amount you give will be offset by a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for the applicable tax year— up to $400 per tax return!  The schools and programs you support are entirely your choice. The law simply states that your donation must go directly to a local school to be used for its extracurricular activities.

It's that easy! Simply write a check to the school(s) of your choice and get a receipt verifying your donation to an extracurricular activity. Then, next Spring, simply claim your tax credit—up to $400— when you file your tax return.

Please note that once you click on the donation link, you will be asked to create an account before submitting your tax credit donation.
