Attention Basha Bears!
Support our school with your Tax Donations!
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, not to the state or the school district. To participate, follow the link below to donate online or you can print a form to complete and submit your contribution.
You can designate your donation to the Basha general fund or to a specific club or activity sponsored by Basha! In addition, you can choose multiple clubs and in the denominations of your choice up to the eligible donation amount. Printed forms can be turned into the front office.
According to the
Arizona Department of Revenue:
“Beginning in 2016, credit eligible fees paid and contributions made to a public school from January 1 through April 15 of a calendar year may be used as a tax credit on the prior year’s tax return.
For example, qualifying contributions made to a public school January 1, 2016 to April 15, 2016 may be used as a tax credit on either your 2015 or 2016 Arizona income tax return.”
