Hello parents and community partners,
It is that time of year when we need your support to call friends, family, and co-workers asking for ECA donations for the Robotics Club. We are running short on time to meet our obligations to pay for this year’s regional robotics competition in Flagstaff, Arizona at the NAU Skydome.
What is ECA tax credit? A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the actual tax owed. Any Arizona tax payer will receive every dollar they donate back after filing their Arizona taxes. If you donate $400 dollars you will get every penny back after you file your Arizona taxes! For example: if you owe the state $500, then you will only have to pay $100; and if the state owes you $100, then you will get $500. Married couples can donate up to $400 and singles can donate up to $200. This is a WIN-WIN situation for everyone!
You do not have to donate the full amount; any amount will help our team and any amount is dollar-for-dollar tax deductible for all individual Arizona taxpayers whether they have children in school or not. You can contribute and receive a tax credit for any amount up to $200, or a couple filing jointly may contribute up to $400. You can choose to donate in installments during the calendar year or donate it all at one time. Any individual who pays Arizona State income tax can donate; you do not need to live in the Mesa Public Schools district.
Best way to donate is on-line at: http://www.mpsaz.org/community/eca
On-line donations are best and go immediately into the Robotics ECA account.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO HAVE EACH PERSON DESIGNATE THEIR DONATION FOR SKYLINE ROBOTICS CLUB. (Do not donate to an individual robotics club member!) If you have questions, please let me know.
