Arizona law ARS 43-1089.01 enables taxpayers a tax credit contribution of up to $400.00 per calendar year if filing status is Married, filing Joint Return; $200.00 per calendar year if filing status is Single or Head of Household; and, $200.00 per calendar year if filing status is Married filing separate return — for contributions that fund extracurricular activities in public schools. A tax credit is a full refund, not a deduction.
Contributions eligible for a tax credit are donated directly to schools (designate “BASHA BANDS”), not to the state or the school district. To participate, follow the links listed above to donate online or you can print a form to complete and submit your contribution.
Your Tax Credit donations are huge asset to the Basha Band program. Without them, students would not be able to have the diverse experiences they do, which make our program strong and unique. In a concerted effort to continue growing, we hope to utilize your donations to further progress our resources to best enable our students!
In the meantime… #GoBears!
