The Arizona Tax Credit Program is so easy, so important, and doesn't cost you a dime! Really!
What is the Arizona Tax Credit Program?
When you make a contribution to the Echo Canyon Tax Credit Fund, you then get to claim the amount on your state income tax return as a credit. This means that if you contribute $400 (the maximum amount allowed for married couples filing jointly - the max is $200 for single filers) you then claim that amount on your Arizona tax return and you will either get that $400 back with your tax refund OR you will have your state tax bill reduced by $400 dollars (depending on whether the State owes you money or you owe the State!. Dollar for dollar. It really doesn't cost you a dime. It's your way of telling the state where you want your tax dollars spent! It is really that easy.
