Have you heard? It can literally cost you nothing to give hundreds of dollars to the school – up to $200 each year for an individual and $400 for a couple! Your tax dollars go directly to our extracurricular and character education programs.
This is a tax credit, not a deduction, so the full amount is subtracted from what you owe in Arizona income tax. You receive a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the amount you pay in taxes to the state for the amount of your donation. You can make a donation as late as April 15th and claim it against the previous year’s taxes.*
Everyone can participate! As long as you have Arizona income tax liability, you can make an Arizona Tax Credit Contribution to DMS. If you have already given, find friends and relatives and have them give to DMS! We ask every family to donate their Tax Credit to DMS and invite their extended network to do the same.
*A confirmation receipt will be sent to you for income tax purposes. Be sure to consult your tax adviser to determine exactly how the tax credit will impact you personally.
EXAMPLE: If you are Married filing Jointly and you owe $700 in state taxes, you can redirect $400 to Desert Marigold School by claiming the Public School Tax Credit Maximum and redirect the balance of $300 to Arizona Waldorf Scholarship Foundation as a Private School Tax Credit. All your tax dollars are redirected to Waldorf Education!!
- Redirect your Public School Tax Credit to Desert Marigold School (complete payment form below)
- If you owe any amount over $200/$400, redirect the overflow amount to Arizona Waldorf Scholarship Foundation go to awsf-tax.org *Note “DMS” on the How did you hear about us question to ensure that 10% comes back to the DMS Annual Fund*
- File your taxes by Apr 15 and note the credits you have given to your favorite Waldorf organizations.
