Tax Credit Information


You can be a hero!

You can save up to $200 (or up to $400 if married couples file jointly) from your Arizona State Tax bill if you donate money to the extra curricular activities here at North Star High School. Your assistance can provide much needed funds to our fee programs.

Here’s your chance!

Tax credit donations are for up to $200 (or up to $400 if married couples file jointly). Although you get the entire amount back at tax time, some people may not want to take full advantage of this opportunity. The amount of the tax credit you take does not have to be for the total allowable amount. You can make a difference in our schools with $50, $75 or $100..

Know the difference!

Contributions to public schools have always been tax deductible. A tax deduction allows you to subtract the amount of a contribution from the amount of your taxable income. The tax law allows a tax credit, which is subtracted from the amount of state taxes you owe. A tax credit is a FULL REFUND of your money!

For those parents interested, call us for the form at (623) 907-2661 which needs to be filled out. Please return it to school with your check by Friday, Dec. 17, 2010.** An official receipt will be mailed to your home.

**Tax credit donations can be made through Dec. 31. Although schools are only open until Dec. 17th, according to the law, donations through Dec. 31 qualify for tax year 2010. Therefore, if the check is dated and in the mail on or before Dec. 31, it’s good.
