Tax Credit
Tax Credit
 
 
Did you know state law (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows you to take a Tax Credit when you donate up to $200 for single filers and $400 for married filers to a public school for extracurricular activities that require an enrolled student to pay a fee? This means taxpayers may help Desert Canyon Middle School and reduce their own state tax bill at the same time!  The deadline for this year is December 31, 2014.
Call our office if you have any questions. 480-484-4600
