Stanton introduces school tax credit web portal

Mayor Greg Stanton introduced a first-of-its-kind city of Phoenix website feature to help increase school tax credit contributions to the city’s most underprivileged schools.

State law allows taxpayers to contribute $200 each year to public schools to go toward valuable extracurricular activities such as field trips, sporting events, laboratory projects and artistic endeavors.

However, the schools and districts that need help the most are often receive the least amount of contributions.

Through the portal, http://phoenix.gov/education/SchoolTax/index.html, residents can view the needs for each Phoenix school district and get direction on how to make contributions that qualify for a full dollar-for-dollar state tax deduction.
