TAXPAYERS, LOWER YOUR TAXES AND SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS!
 
TAX CREDIT: HOW DOES IT WORK?

A Tax Credit, which is the dollar-for dollar reduction of your tax liability, is better than a tax deduction, which only reduces your taxable income before taxes are computed.

Instead of sending all your state taxes to the State of Arizona, you can make a contribution to a public school. A.R.S. §43-1089.01 allows taxpayers a TAX CREDIT  up to $200.00 for “Single” or “Head of Household” tax filers and up to $400.00 for “Married Couple Filing a Joint Return” when contributing to EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES in public schools. This gives you the opportunity to help your local school. The tax credit is available to all taxpayers, regardless of whether they have children in school. It would be advisable to consult your tax advisor regarding your specific tax status.

What is an EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY?

Extracurricular activity means any optional, non-credit educational or competitive school sponsored activity that supplements the education program of the school. Activities such as sports, visual and performing arts, field trips, outdoor education or character education programs can be funded with tax credit money. Extracurricular activities do not include any events that are recreational, amusement or tourist activities.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
You may select which school and which program you would like to support. The amount of the tax credit you take does not have to be for the total allowance. You can make a difference in our schools with just $50.00, $75.00, or $100.00. In addition, the credit may be split between one or more schools and/or one or more programs. 

HOW CAN I TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE TAX CREDIT? UPDATE

Complete the attached form and return to the school of your choice by April 15, 2020 or mail to the District Office prior to April 15, 2020 in order to take it off your State of Arizona taxes at the time you file for 2019. Arizona Tax Credit Donation Form

Peachjar-Electronic Flyers

Litchfield Elementary School District uses an electronic flyer communication tool called Peachjar. It is an innovative flyer management system that sends school-approved digital flyers directly to parents’ inboxes and posts them online. Parents and community members can easily find and view flyers and take action immediately to sign up for activities and events.

Peachjar Program Providers

If you would like to promote events, programs, and activities to our school community, you are required to register with Peachjar as a Program Provider. After your flyer has been submitted to Peachjar, it will be routed automatically to our District Office for approval, and then emailed as a visually engaging image to all parents who have their email address on file at the District. With the exception of internal school communication, paper flyers are not permissible on front office counters. Peachjar charges a fee for this service. Learn more about Peachjar at peachjar.com/community-orgs.

ALL flyers MUST include the following disclaimer: 

"Litchfield Elementary School District neither endorses nor sponsors the organization or activity represented in this material. The distribution or display of this material is provided as a community service."
