ARIZONA SCHOOL 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.

Who can benefit from this law?
All Arizona tax payers are eligible: you do not have to have children within the school district to benefit from this law.

What Qualifies?
By law, only donations to extracurricular activities that charge a fee, such as tutoring, athletics, band, orchestra, field trips, special programs and more qualify for the tax credit.  Donations must be made to the school district, but directed toward a specific activity at a specific school.

Donations can be designated in multiple ways:
  • Designated for a specific child’s participation in an extracurricular activity OR
  • Designated for a specific school(s) OR 
  • Designated for a specific program(s) OR 
  • Designated to be directed to the school(s) that has the greatest need.

Our schools received $538,838.00 in donations last year. You can help our schools again this year by getting the word out. Tell your friends, neighbors, and relatives living in Arizona that they can help. If they pay Arizona Income Tax, they can help, even if they don't have kids or kids in our school district.
