Change in School Tax Credit Policy

Eligible contributions made to a public school from January 1 through April 15 of a calendar year may now be used as a tax credit on the prior year’s tax return. This means that contributions made to Ash Creek School from January 1, 2016 to April 15, 2016 may now be used as a tax credit on either your 2015 or 2016 Arizona income tax return. This increases your opportunity and flexibility in making a tax credit donation to Ash Creek School.

To make a donation, see How to Help above where you will find a link to the tax credit form.
