AZ Tax Credit Contributions
Arizona School Tax Credits Make A Difference for Students!

Under Arizona law, a state tax credit is available for contributions to support extracurricular activities in public schools.  Student activities like band, drama, chorus, athletics, art, field trips and before and after school clubs can all benefit.  Generally, any optional, non-credit, educational activity that supplements the educational program of the schools are considered to be extracurricular and eligible for tax credit funding.  Tax credits are a great way to support our kids in the Performing Arts, Athletics, JROTC, Science Club, Robotics Club, Spanish Club, Field Trips, Outdoor Education, Character Building, Choir, and so much more!

You Choose Where Your Money Goes!

As an Arizona taxpayer, you have the unique opportunity to redirect a portion of your state tax dollars to support public education.  The credit allows you to contribute $200 per individual tax return or $400 per joint tax return to any school’s extracurricular program. 

You can:
- Make a general contribution to Gilbert Public Schools
- Contribute to the named school of your choice
- or support your student's specific extracurricular activities

Also, you don't have to have a child in a Gilbert Public School to participate - Please let friends and family know how they can support your child's education!

Tax Credit Contribution FAQs

For the purpose of claiming Arizona’s tax credit for contributions made or certain fees paid to a public school, the Arizona Department of Revenue now requires taxpayers report the school’s County Code, Type Code, and District Code & Site Number (CTDS) number on Form 322, which is included with the Arizona income tax return.

The CTDS is a nine (9) digit number that the Arizona Department of Education uses to identify Arizona schools.
