What Is this State Tax Credit? The State of Arizona Tax Credit program allows you to allocate your tax dollars to Cherokee Elementary.

DID YOU KNOW… Arizona state law allows you to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for single filers and $400 for married filers for contributions to a public school designated for extracurricular activities? This mean taxpayers may help Cherokee AND reduce their state tax bill at the same time, by the same amount. This is an incredible “WIN/WIN”. Support Cherokee at literally NO cost to you!

Any Arizona tax payer can participate. You must take advantage of the great opportunity before the year ends. Donations/Checks must be postmarked by April 15, 2022.
