Extracurricular Activity (ECA) 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 Crismon 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.

 

Please note: ECA donations are not refundable nor transferable.

 

For more information and to make your contribution, please visit the district's website.

 

Thank you for supporting Crismon Elementary.
