    Question & Answers


    Q:   What is a Tax Credit?

    A:  A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the actual tax owed.  Qualifying contributions ($400 married couples filing jointly; $200 individual), can be claimed on personal Arizona income taxes to reduce the amount owed or increase the refund.


    Q:  Tax credit, tax deduction… what is the difference?

    A:  A tax deduction allows you to subtract the amount of a contribution from the amount of your taxable income.  Although donations to public schools have been tax deductible in previous years, a tax credit allows the contributor to subtract the amount of the qualifying tax credit from the money owed for state taxes. 


    Q:  I don’t owe the state or am entitled to a refund… will I still benefit?

    A:  Yes!  An Arizona taxpayer can go from owing the State money to receiving a refund or increasing their refund through their Arizona tax return.


    Q:  Who can contribute?

    A:  Any Arizona taxpayer can make a tax credit donation, regardless of whether or not they have a child in school or live in the Chandler Unified School District. 


    Q:  Can I choose who or what my contribution benefits?

    A:  Yes!  You can designate the allocation of your contribution.
