Arizona Tax Credit Program
Public School Activity Tax Credit
Donors like you can direct their donations to benefit a specific extracurricular activity, club or sports team, or donations can go to general educational enrichment or educational field trips..
Arizona taxpayers can claim up to $200 as individuals or $400 as married filing jointly on their taxes for this credit.
What is it?
Donate your tax credit securely. Arizona Taxpayers can contribute up to $200.00 per single taxpayer or $400.00 per household filing jointly to the Arizona school or schools of their choice and receive a dollar-for-dollar reduction in their tax liability on their Arizona state tax return. Pine Forest School can in turn use these contributions to fund critical programs such as Eurythmy, field trips, and other educational programs not considered part of our core curriculum. For details, visit Arizona Department of Revenue.
