Private Tuition Tax Credit-Original

Arizona tax law allows individual taxpayers an income tax credit up to $546 (single and head of household) or $1,092 (married filing jointly) for donations to a private school tuition organization, such as the Brophy Community Foundation.

Donation deadline is April 15th.

Private Tuition Tax Credit-PLUS

In 2012, the Arizona legislature enacted a law (effective 2012 tax year) allowing Arizona taxpayers, who have maximized their annual donation for the first tax credit (stated above), a second income tax credit. For 2017, donations up to $543 (single and head of household) or $1085 (married filing jointly) to a private tuition organization, such as the Brophy Community Foundation.
