Would you like to take $400 off of your state income tax and help Gila Bend Schools at the same time? A.R.S. 43-1089.01 allows taxpayers to receive up to $400 (Tax Credit English)(Tax Credit Spanish)by contributing to our schools extracurricular activities. This tax credit allows any taxpayer (parent and non-parent) to take up to $400 credit before paying Arizona State Income Tax while supporting school activities. Individual's up to $200, Couples up to $400.
Activities such as sports, special programs, field trips, clubs, outdoor education, gifted programs, or classroom enrichment programs can be funded with tax credit money. The Gila Bend School District is committed to maintaining these activities for the enjoyment and enrichment of our students. Unfortunately, our funding is not sufficient to offset all of the associated costs. As a result, these programs must depend on fees from students. And that's where you can help. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to give so much to your children's and grand children's school without costing you anything.
To donate, stop in and pick up the Tax Credit Form, then return it along with your donation to the school office. Be sure to mail in your donation by April 15.
