What's the Benefit of Public School Tax Credits?

Tax credit contributions support extracurricular activities for grades K-12. Those activities help keep kids in school, improve their attendance and help them learn and grow.

You benefit, too. When you participate, you reduce your State tax liability by the amount you contribute. You get your money back, dollar-for-dollar, in the form of a tax reduction.

Any Arizona taxpayer can participate! If you have relatives anywhere in Arizona, encourage them to contribute to your child's school right here in Tucson.

And don't forget that you can contribute to both the Arizona Public School Tax Credit and the Charitable Tax Credit to help TUSD schools in two ways!

Please consult your tax professional for more information.
