STO4KIDZ accepts contributions throughout the year. Contributions must be made prior to filing your taxes but no later than April 15.
HOW MUCH CAN I CONTRIBUTE?
You can contribute up to the combined maximum of the Original ARS 43-1089 and the Switcher ARS 43-1089.03, or your actual Arizona tax liability, whichever is less, and receive a dollar-for-dollar Arizona state tax credit. If you have no liability, you cannot receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit. For tax filing purposes, the total amount is broken down into two (2) categories: (Individual Original & Individual Switcher tax credit).
See the chart below for the total dollar amount allowed for each year:
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE:
Step 1: Identity how much is your Arizona state income tax liability. (If you receive a W2, check your last Pay-stub or your W2 slip for the amount of your State taxes).
Step 3: For tax filing purposes, the total amount is broken down into two (2) categories: (Individual Original & Individual Switcher tax credit).
If your income tax is above the maximum amount allowed for filing jointly or filing singly, then do the following:
- Select the dollar amount for your filing status (married/jointly or single) under the Individual Original tax credit and repeat the steps under the Switcher section.
If your income tax is less than the maximum amount allowed for filing jointly or filing singly, then do the following:
- Select "Other Amount" under the Individual Original tax credit and type the total amount of your tax credit contribution, ONLY.
Step 4: List your recommended student(s)/ school (optional) and complete your payment.
Step 5: Once STO4KIDZ receives your payment, we will email or mail you an official receipt with instructions on how to claim your tax credit and the tax forms to use when filing your state taxes.
When filing your personal taxes, you can claim the tax credit by using Arizona forms 301 and 323 along with state income tax forms. However, if you contribute to the Switcher program, you also need to file a 348 form. Also, use AZ Schedule A to claim the federal deduction. All these forms and more can be found at azdor.gov.
