Arizona Tax Credit
Avalon Charter School is pleased to participate in the Arizona Tax Credit program. This is a way for your donations to make a real impact on our students. The credit allows any Arizona taxpayer to make a donation to the school and claim a tax credit of up to $200 for individuals and up to $400 for joint tax returns. These donations benefit the students directly through field trips and other extracurricular programs.
