Turn your state taxes into tuition scholarships for kids in private schools. You can support your friends and family in their educational choices by making a donation to Arizona Tuition Connection. These donations are then awarded as tuition scholarships.
By choosing this tax credit program, you will take control of your taxes. 100% of your contribution can be taken as a tax credit against your Arizona State taxes. A credit is better than a deduction, as it reduces your overall state tax liability. In addition to a state tax credit, your donation may also be eligible to be taken as a federal tax deduction.
You may recommend a student or school receive your donation. Arizona Tuition Connection uses the recommendation of the donor as the primary criteria when awarding scholarships.
Married taxpayers that file a joint return may contribute up to $2,183 in the 2016 tax year. Single taxpayers or heads of household may contribute up to $1,087.
Your contribution can be taken as a tax credit/reduction against your Arizona state tax liability.
Contributions can be accepted through April 15th, 2017 for credit in the 2016 tax year.
Individuals with no Arizona State tax liability may still donate, but they can’t take the donation as a tax credit because they have no Arizona State liability to take the credit against. Their donations can be taken as a Federal tax deduction in the year in which the donation was made.
There are some rules you need to be aware of:
1. It is against the rules to donate to kids within your own household.
2. It is against the rules to swap donations with another family.
3. Not all children are eligible to receive all scholarships. So the student you recommend might not be eligible to receive your full donation. (See our FAQ pages for more information)
Arizona Tuition Connection is a 501(c)(3) federal tax exempt charitable organization, guaranteeing at least 90% of all donations are awarded out as scholarships. (EIN 46-1879761)
