Take The Credit

Deadline extended! You can take the credit for 2017 until April 17, 2018, or when you file your taxes, whichever comes first.

Since 1999, the Jewish Tuition Organization  has been privileged to award over 5,000 need-based scholarships to help students obtain a Jewish day school education with funds raised through the Arizona Private School Tax Credit. You can take the credit and receive a dollar-for-dollar Arizona tax credit up to a maximum of $1,089 for filing single or married (filing separate returns) and $2,177 for married (filing joint returns).

2016 Arizona Private School Tax Credit

  Original Tax Credit Switcher Tax Credit Total
Individuals $546 $543 $1,089
Joint Returns $1,092 $1,085 $2,177

This is your chance to support a child who could benefit from a quality Jewish education at absolutely no cost to you. With your help, we can achieve our goal of ensuring no child is denied a Jewish day school education because of the cost.

Please Note: A school tuition organization cannot award, restrict or reserve scholarships solely on the basis of donor recommendation. A taxpayer may not claim a tax credit if the taxpayer agrees to swap donations with another taxpayer to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependent. The Jewish Tuition Organization does not accept donor recommendations. All scholarships are need based. Consult your tax advisor for specific tax advice.

Reminder: The maximum credit amount that may be taken for tax year 2016 is $1,087 for single, unmarried head of household and married, filing separate filers, and $2,173 for married filing joint filers. The tax credit for contributions to private school tuition organizations is claimed by the individual taxpayer on AZ Form 323 and Form 348. These forms will be mailed to you at the end of January 2017 with your receipt.
