We encourage families to learn more about making a tax credit donation. 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. We can accept as little as $10. Neighbors, family members, friends and all others who pay taxes to the state of Arizona may also donate to CTA-Independence and receive the credit. A tax credit is a refund, not a deduction.
Contributions eligible for a tax credit are donated directly to schools, not to the state or the school district.
For your convenience donation forms are available in the front office. You may bring a check made payable to CTA Independence to our school office then fill out the form. You may also make a contribution online. If you make your contribution online, please remember to select our school.
A few of the ways that our tax credit dollars are currently being used include: extracurricular before and after school programs, our Character Counts program, a Youth Frontiers’ Kindness Retreat for our sixth Graders, buses for field trips, Masterpiece Art supplies, and other resources needed for our extracurricular activities and clubs. Tax Credit donations provide so many wonderful extra opportunities for our CTA-Independence students. Please help our school continue to provide fun and educational activities this year. We thank you for your continued support of our school.
