Arizona school tax credit donations can be made to AJUSD

Area residents who are interested in making an Arizona school tax credit donation to Apache Junction Unified School District can do so with their 2018 tax return.

Arizona allows an individual taxpayer to contribute up to $200 — or a married couple filing jointly up to $400 — to a public school of their choice and get a dollar-for-dollar credit against their tax liability. That means an Arizona taxpayer can direct some of the money that he or she would normally pay in state taxes to go directly to the eligible school program he or she selects, according to a release.

You do not have to contribute the maximum amount to participate. Any amount is appreciated. For more information about the program visit For more information about AJUSD’s specific needs, call Sandra Bohr at 480-982-1110 ext. 2001, the release states.
