Extra-Curricular Activities AZ Tax Credit
Parents, relatives and friends can help support their favorite student’s education by taking advantage of the Arizona Extracurricular Activity School Tax Credit (ECA).
It’s a win-win for you and the school. The State of Arizona allows a tax credit of up to $200 for individuals and $400 for married couples filing jointly, for fees or donations paid to a public school in support of extracurricular activities such as field trips, science camp and music programs.
The beauty of the tax credit is that it costs you nothing, gives you a say in how your tax dollars are spent and reduces your tax bill by whatever amount you donate. Let’s say you donate $400 to an eligible school activity, you can reduce your Arizona tax bill by $400 or if you expect a refund it can be $400 more.
So while you are writing yourself a lower tax bill you are also supporting many wonderful programs that might not otherwise exist. Last year, taxpayers like you helped cover the costs of field trips; after-school programs; admission to plays, concerts, parks, museums and nature camps; along with music, art and physical education programs. Simply put, tax credit donations make possible a wide range of learning opportunities that our children would not otherwise have. And you don’t even need to have a child in the school to benefit from this tax credit. Making a donation is easy – just call (480) 461-3222 or use the PayPal Donate button below to donate online.
We appreciate your support of our students’ activities.
