As an Individual taxpayer, you will receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit and may qualify to claim it as a donation on your federal taxes. Your tax dollars enable a family to have a school choice and you become a part of a child’s life and his/her future. All Students can be recommended by individual tax contributors. Did You Know? You Can Contribute Your State Income Tax Without Affecting Your Take Home Paycheck! See detail below: “2019 Withholding Tax Reduction Pledge form.”
STO4KIDZ accepts contributions throughout the year. Contributions must be made prior to filing your taxes but no later than April 15. You may choose to claim the tax credit for the previous or current tax year.
You can contribute up to the combined maximum of the Original ARS 43-1089 and Switcher ARS 43-1089.03, or your 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.
You must first contribute the maximum to the Original tuition tax credit program, in order to contribute the additional amount.
When you are filing your taxes, you can claim the tax credit by using the 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.
