Arizona Corporate Tax Credit
Here’s how it works:
An Arizona “C” Corporation(A.R.S. § 43-1183)can donate to a corporate School Tuition Organization (STO) designating a particular school (i.e. Lehi Montessori). There is an annual state-wide cap of $123,042,188 that opens on July 7, 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year that is allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. “C” Corporations can donate up to their state income tax liability for the given tax year as long as it does not exceed the statewide cap for the year.
An Arizona “S” Corporation(A.R.S. § 43-1089.04) can donate to a corporate School Tuition Organization (STO) designating a particular school (i.e. Lehi Montessori). There is an annual state-wide cap of $123,042,188 that opens on July 7, 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year that is allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. “S” Corporations may donate up to their state income tax liability for the given tax year with a minimum donation of $5,000 and then pass the tax credit on to it’s shareholders proportionately.
Qualified families apply to the STO for a financial aid scholarship.
The STO awards the scholarships and the money is sent directly to the schools.
At tax time, the corporation claims the corporate tax credit for the amount contributed.
The State of Arizona provides a credit against the corporation’s state taxes for 100% of your contribution.
*designating money to a particular student is prohibited from corporate donors
Donating to K-12 private schools can mean dollar-for-dollar returns on your business’s state income or premium taxes. It’s a win-win situation for the families in need, the community and you, the taxpayer. Help inspire a new generation of thinkers, teachers, and leaders by providing them with the specialized education they deserve.
