The difference is priceless.


Corporate Low-Income Tax Credit for Private Schools

Your corporation can change children's lives for the better. Corporations with Arizona state income tax or insurance premium tax obligation can redirect their corporate tax dollars through the low-income corporate tax credit. This enables eligible corporations to take a dollar-for-dollar credit for contributions made to the program. In turn, the funds provide need-based scholarships for low-income students. It’s a win-win for both parties.

C-Corporations

C-corporations may contribute the total of their annual state income tax or insurance premium tax liability as long as the low-income corporate tax credit cap has not been met. Credits may be carried forward for up to five (5) years if a corporation contributes more than their tax liability in the year they donate.

S-Corporations

S-corporations may contribute the total of their annual state income tax or insurance premium tax liability as long as the low-income corporate tax credit cap has not been met. There is a minimum contribution amount of $5,000. Credits are passed on to the shareholders proportionally. Credits may be carried forward for up to five (5) years if a corporation contributes more than their tax liability in the year they donate.

Timing for Corporate Tax Credit Contributions

You may submit an application to make a corporate low-income tax credit contribution to the foundation at any time. Applications are submitted by AISSF to The Arizona department of Revenue for approval beginning in July and continuing until eligible funds for the fiscal year have been claimed. The corporate low-income cap for fiscal year 2019-2020 is $106,993,207.
