Extracurricular Activity (ECA) – State Tax Credit
Arizona law provides a tax credit for contributions to public schools to support extracurricular activities or character education. Additional support areas include:
- standardized testing fees for college credit or readiness, such as PSAT, AP and IB tests
- career and technical education industry certification assessment
- preparation courses and materials for standardized testing
You can help Highland Arts students and possibly lower your tax bill by making a donation.
The state tax credit is available to ALL qualifying individual Arizona state taxpayers. You do not need to have a child enrolled in a school to take advantage of this state tax credit. It is always best to consult a tax adviser to see if you qualify for the dollar-for-dollar credit.
A tax credit is different from a deduction, because you may subtract the whole contribution from your Arizona state tax bill. An individual may contribute as much as $200, and a couple filing jointly may contribute as much as $400 to a public school and receive the money back in the form of a tax credit. Learn More!
