School Tax Credits

Help our students while helping yourself!

Arizona Tax Law allows taxpayers (whether or not they have children in school) to receive a tax credit of up to $400 for donations that benefit students in our public schools. That's not just a deduction, it's a TAX CREDIT! It reduces what you owe in state taxes, dollar-for-dollar.

Pay ONLINE using our WebStore.

What Qualifies?

By law, only donations to extracurricular activities qualify for the tax credit. Donations must be made to the school district, but directed toward a specific activity at a specific school. You may specify that your donation is a contribution that benefits all children, or you may designate it as a fee to cover the cost of a specific child’s participation in an activity.

How Does It Work?

Just send a donation to the Flowing Wells School District, selecting to support one our many qualifying extracurricular activities. We'll send you a receipt for your records. Then, when you fill out your Arizona state taxes, you can subtract your donation from what you owe in taxes.

Fill out the form then make your donation in person at any Flowing Wells school or mail it, along with your check, to Flowing Wells School District. Credits should be taken in the year donated; however, donations made from January 1 to April 15 can used be in either the current or prior year. Questions? Call Stacy Trueblood at 696-8813. For more information, see the school tax credits brochure.

Just fill out the form below and drop off your donation in person at any Flowing Wells school or mail it, along with your check to:

Flowing Wells School District
1556 W. Prince Road
Tucson, AZ 85705

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.
