Take advantage of Arizona's School Tax Credit

School is more than a classroom education. Students learn, grow and experience success through a variety of extracurricular activities and student-interest clubs. Active students have better grades, stay in school and develop leadership skills, or uncover talents they never knew they had.

Contribute to student programs and activities in the Glendale Elementary School District, and you’ll be paid back with a dollar-for-dollar tax credit. Not only will you benefit, so will GESD students. Your tax credit donation will help them experience all school has to offer.

Arizona tax law allows taxpayers a tax credit of up to $200 for individuals or up to $400 for married couples filing jointly. Tax credits allow any Arizona state resident to submit a donation and get a dollar-for-dollar return on their state taxes. You get every penny back when you file your state return either as a reduction in your tax bill or added to your refund. The tax credit is available to all taxpayers, not just those with children in public schools.
