Arizona Tuition Tax Credits
The NO-COST way to provide scholarships for DCS students
Tuition Tax Credits offer Arizona taxpayers the opportunity to support school choice while receiving a dollar-for-dollar tax credit--not just a deduction. This marvelous program is the envy of citizens throughout the country, and we are very thankful for it.
In December of 1997, the Arizona Legislature enacted Tuition Tax Credits to help fund scholarships to independent schools. Since that time, hundreds of Arizona taxpayers have directed a portion of their state income taxes to scholarship Desert Christian students.
This program has allowed Desert Christian to continue to serve a diverse ethnic, racial and socioeconomic student body.
Pay taxes or give the gift of education: The choice is yours!
Every Arizona tax filer who makes a voluntary contribution to the Institute for Better Education will receive a State Tax Credit receipt for their contribution. Filer may claim a tax credit of up to $1000.00 for married couples filing jointly, $500.00 for married couples filing separately, or $500 for single filers. It is that simple. IBE distributes funds throughout the year to scholarship applicants, so your contribution is used immediately. You may even have regular deductions made from your paycheck throughout the year, by filling out the application here.
Your tax-credit contribution will help provide children of families who otherwise would not be able to afford a Christian education.
