Why the tax credit is so important..

Some have questioned the tax credit's validity given our state's public education financial challenges.  To answer questions concerning the tax credit's validity, the legislature contracted with Dr. Charles North of Baylor University whose study found that if the tax credit to private schools were to disappear, the cost to the State of Arizona's public school system would be between $44 million and $186 million.  Thus, the Arizona legislature determined that it is in Arizona's best interest for private schools to continue to thrive.


ARIZONA TAX CREDIT

Arizona provides a fantastic opportunity to help children obtain a values-based, Christian education with its tuition tax credit program. By taking advantage of this opportunity, Arizona taxpayers can donate money to the White Mountain Tuition Support Foundation (WMTSF) and receive a dollar for dollar tax credit when they file their Arizona tax return. THIS IS FREE MONEY AND COSTS THE TAXPAYER NOTHING! In many cases, the donation can also be deducted on their federal return. Donations to the WMTSF are used to fund scholarships for students at Saint Anthony School. Here is how it works:

White Mountain Tuition Support Foundation (WMT) is an official School Tuition Organization (STO) - certified by the Department of Revenue for the State of Arizona.  As such, WMT is certified to receive tax credit contributions from individual tax payers according to the maximum amounts set by the Arizona State legislature.  The tax credit laws began in January of 1998 and have been through many changes, resulting last year in tax payers having two individual tax credits to claim with the state - the "original" and the "plus" credits.  These two credits, the “original” and the “plus” have higher maximums this year, meaning you can give up to a total of $2,173 (married, filing jointly) and $1087 (single) !
