Arizona Corporate Tax Credit Program  (A.R.S. 43-1183 & A.R.S. 43-1184)

There is a clear and strong correlation between the educational attainment of a workforce and their median wages. Better education and training fuel innovation, investment, and economic diversification. Providing expanded access to high-quality education will not only expand economic opportunities but also likely do more to strengthen the overall economy than anything else. By making that investment, you ensure a robust workforce that has the ability to help your business flourish and grow well into the future by redirecting your tax dollars back into your community.
