Deadline for 2020 Credit is Monday, May 17th

If you haven’t filed your 2020 Arizona tax return yet, you still have time to donate to STAY and receive a 100% credit on your Arizona income tax. Donations are used to fund scholarships for local children to attend a private school of their choice. Many of the kids who receive scholarships from STAY would not be able to attend private school without help. The deadline to donate has been extended to May 17th this year.



Deadline for 2020 Credit Contributions Extended

Arizona has announced the deadline to contribute to STOs like STAY for a 2020 Arizona tax credit has been extended to May 17th. This change comes as the state adjusted the individual tax return deadline to coincide with the new federal deadline. Arizona tax credits are a great way to keep money local and the Private School Tuition Tax Credit helps local children attend a private school of their choice. This is an option many of the families we serve wouldn’t have without help.
