Arizona Private School Tax Credit

Arizona offers its residents and select corporations an opportunity to redirect a portion of their Arizona tax obligation in support of the financial aid program of their favorite independent school – PCDS.

Individual Tax Credit

Arizona offers its residents an opportunity to redirect a portion of their Arizona tax obligation in support of the financial aid program of their favorite independent school – PCDS. Participants then receive a dollar-for-dollar credit against their Arizona income taxes. Deadline: April 15, 2022 for the 2021 tax year.

While there are many educational tax credit foundations, PCDS directs its donors to support the Arizona Independent Schools Scholarship Foundation (AISSF).

Corporate Tax Credit

Your company can fund scholarships for students who need them at NO out-of-pocket cost to your corporation. By making a corporate tax credit contribution, companies can redirect the taxes they would otherwise pay to the state to fund scholarships for the most deserving and highest-need students to attend PCDS.

Each year, PCDS provides over 170 scholarships, thanks to the support of individual and corporate tax credit contributions. PCDS is committed to supporting each scholarship student’s entire PCDS career - whether they start in kindergarten or 9th grade.

For more information, please contact Katie Charles, Director of Annual Giving & Stewardship, or Taylor Nelson, Coordinator of Arizona Corporate Tax Credit.
