Each Friday for the past 4 weeks we have been posting Tax Credit Campaign reminders at the PFFS website and blasting them out through our MailChimp ‘Weekly Update‘ – to which many within our community are subscribed. We want to thank everyone who has made their 2015 Tax Credit contribution to one of the two Paulo Freire schools and apologize to you for having to see/read another reminder. If you have not yet made your 2015 contribution, thank you for reading this reminder and if you can, please take a moment right now (before you forget) to write that check or make that online contribution through Paypal to either PFFS-Downtown or PFFS-University.
A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction of the taxes you owe to the state. If, for example, a family owes $300 in taxes to the Arizona Department of Revenue and they make a $250 tax credit contribution to PFFS before December 31, 2015 – the family’s tax bill decreases to $50. Or, if a family were to be getting a refund of $500 from the Arizona Department of Revenue but they make a $250 tax credit contribution to PFFS before December 31, 2015 – they would instead be getting back $550 when they file their 2015 return. All Arizona taxpayers are able to take advantage of this dollar-for-dollar school tax credit option, whether or not they have children in school.
Please consider making a Tax Credit donation before 12/31/15 to one of the Paulo Freire Freedom Schools and encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to do the same. Each school (because they are separate public school entities) conducts their own Tax Credit Campaign.
Click on the school mascots (the PFFS-D Dragons or the PFFS-U Platypi) to find out more about each school’s campaign and make your tax credit contribution today either by check or online through PayPal!
