Tax Credit

Avondale ESD’s Tax Credit Program

Did you know there is an easy way to support our schools that won’t cost you anything?  Arizona Law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers a tax credit when they contribute to extra-curricular activities in public schools. 

What is a school tax credit?

A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in state taxes that are owed. In general, if you make a tax credit contribution and you owe on your state taxes, in most cases, the amount of your tax credit contribution will be deducted from your tax bill.

Who is eligible to make a tax credit donation? 

A tax credit is available to all Arizona taxpayers, regardless if they have children in school or not. Anyone who resides and can file taxes in the state of Arizona can make a tax credit contribution. The Arizona tax law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers a tax credit up to $400 for Married Couple Filing a Joint Return and $200 for Single or Head of Household tax filers when contributing to extracurricular activities in public schools.
