Arizona Tax Credit Donations
Your donation benefits MUSD students
Arizona law (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers to receive a
tax credit of up to$200 for
a single individual or a head of household and $400 for
a married couple filing a joint return 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.
Make your donation online or send your donation in
person to the Marana Unified School District, earmarked for support of one
of our many qualifying extracurricular activities. We'll send you a receipt for
your records. Then, when you fill out your Arizona state tax forms, you can subtract your donation -
up to $400 - from what you owe in taxes.
