As Arizona taxpayers, did you know you can claim an Arizona School Tax Credit as a donation to support Legacy Traditional Schools?
That’s right, Arizona taxpayers can claim a credit for donations of up to $400 for a married couple filing jointly, or up to $200 for all other filers!
Donations directly help to fund educational field trips and offset the cost of activities and programs, including musicals, concerts, art shows, spelling bees, speech tournaments, and science fairs.
Donations are paid to a central fund at the school that supports extracurricular activities for all students. They can also be paid toward your own child’s participation in a particular activity, however, individual donation amounts must not exceed the actual costs of the activity.
How can I donate?
Contributions made between Jan. 1, 2020, and April 15, 2020, can be claimed as a credit on either your 2019 or 2020 tax returns.
If you have yet to make a donation to an Arizona school, please consider contributing to Legacy. Your contribution will result in a dollar-for-dollar, easy to claim, tax credit on your 2019 or 2020 Arizona income taxes.
Is there any cost to me?
Nope! You can help fund Legacy’s campuses without any out-of-pocket cost!
