Tax Credit for Natalie Karlen!


Dear friends,

Ainsley and Natalie are our wonderful twins, who will be entering high school next year.

Ainsley is free spirit who loves music and animals, and gets most excited about science. She had been involved in advanced band (trumpet) and choir, and loves being in school plays and musicals. and will be attending the Arizona School for the Arts . she is thrilled and we're very happy for her.

Natalie is quiet, but a serious student. She loves reading and literature. She also enjoys the advanced band (clarinet), choir, and musical. and will be attending Xavier College Preparatory.

Both girls are volunteering at Phoenix Children’s, and are looking forward to expanding their involvement in activities as they have more of them available.

As you may already know, Arizona gives its taxpayers the choice on how your taxes are used. You can allocate state income tax dollars to create tuition aid for kids like ours in private schools. The net cost to you is ZERO, but the benefit to kids like Natalie is PRICELESS! Everyone really win!

Melissa and I have been redirecting our taxes to other students since the state won't allow parents to allocate their taxes and recommend their own children. We would be grateful if you'd consider doing the same for Natalie to help us reduce her tuition at xavier.


Two Opportunities to Contribute and Make a Difference

Maximum tax credit allowed OR your actual tax liabilities

This is not a donation, but it's income taxes that we all have to pay anyhow, even if you plan to file for an extension, you get 100% of it back as a credit as long as you make your contribution by or before April 15 of each year, (or the designated date set by IRS). Your Arizona tax liability is reduced dollar-for-dollar when you contribute to a school tuition organization such as STO4KIDZ that turns these dollars into tuition aid. It's a win-win!

For your convenience, here is a step-by-step guide and the donor form. Please list Natalie Karlen at Xavier College Preparatory . STO4KIDZ will email you a receipt for your taxes with instruction on how to claim your dollar-for-dollar tax credit.

Please take a couple of minutes to watch a short video at the end of this page which explains how this works and call us or STO4KIDZ staff with any questions.

We are most grateful for your consideration.
