Tax Credit Donations Arroyo

Have you ever wished you could designate where your state tax money goes? Well, you can. Thanks to Arizona Revised Statute 43-1089.01 enacted in 1998, taxpayers may receive up to a $400 tax credit on their State income taxes by contributing to one of Washington Elementary School District's extracurricular activity programs.

The tax credit program gives a dollar-for-dollar reduction in state income taxes. This law allows taxpayers the opportunity to designate their tax dollars to directly benefit schools and students.

According to the law, this money must be designated for extracurricular activities that supplement the educational program. These activities may include: before- and after-school band clubs; classes; sports programs; and non-recreational field trips. Extracurricular programs provide positive learning experiences for children.
