Arizona Tax Benefits

Through an NVCA and ACSTO partnership, you can support Christian education, and specifically NVCA, and get a tax credit for your investment. By contributing to ACSTO on behalf of NVCA, an exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, you can support a truly exceptional education-and get a credit against your AZ income taxes, and possibly, another benefit on your Federal taxes with a donation deduction*.

How the donation works:

State Tax Credit:  Donate no later than April 18, 2016 and claim the credit on your 2015 taxes

Federal Deduction: Make the deduction before December 31, 2015 to claim on your 2015 taxes

How much can you donate?

For 2015, married couples, filing jointly, can donate up to $1090; $545 as a single filer on your Arizona income tax liability.  Once you donate the maximum for the Original tax credit, you can then donate towards the Overflow/Plus tax credit of an additional $1083 for married, filing jointly, and $542 for single filers

2017 maximums will increase to:

  • Total for single tax payers: $1089
  • Total for married, filing jointly: $2177
