As we enter the holidays, things get very busy very quickly. Soon we will all be caught in a whirlwind of family gatherings, shopping, charity activities, and celebrations. By the time we come up for air, it’s January!
Let me take this opportunity to suggest that you send in your AZ Tax Credit form on or before Fri., Dec. 20, the last day of school before the winter break. Download it here, choose the extracurricular activity you want to contribute to, and send it, along with your donation, for your student to drop off at the front office.
You can donate up to $400 for a family, up to $200 from a single person. Once we receive your donation, we’ll send you a receipt. Then in April, you can subtract the amount from your tax bill. Friends and family can donate and get tax credits too – just send them the link! It’s a win-win situation.
What’s more, you can choose the extracurricular activity you wish to support. Our most popular tax credit activities are sports teams, field trips, and after school music/dance classes, but any activity that charges a fee to participate can qualify.
Donations like this are a great way to support charter schools. All forms must be postmarked by Dec. 31 – but why give yourself another deadline to meet during the holidays? Send it in, check it off the list, and get on with having a delightful Christmas.
