Arizona Tax Credit Program
The program is a win/win for everyone. By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support special programs at San Tan Charter School such as Music Education and Media Sciences, which each student participates in and Physical Education including Character Education, in which students participate in daily. It also helps support our newest addition of Library and computer lab time for our students.
The best part, is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200. A one-time contribution is also wonderful.
