Tax Credit Donation Information
A Great Way to Support Your School
Taxpayers filing in Arizona have the unique opportunity to redirect a portion of state tax dollars they already pay, to public education. The credit allows an Arizona taxpayer to contribute $200 per individual tax return or $400 per joint tax return to a school’s extracurricular program.
Contributions are to the school of your choice. Murphy Schools has many extracurricular activities or programs that can benefit from these funds! Extracurricular activity means any optional, activity that supplements the education program of the school. Activities such as field trips, after-school enrichment programs, character education, clubs, athletics, visual & performing arts, and in-state or out-of-state trips solely for competitive events can be funded with tax credit money. Trips or events that are recreational, amusement, or tourist activities CANNOT be funded with tax credit money.
