How to support the band with

Arizona Tax Credit

The Arizona Tax Credit Program allows individuals to direct up to $200/year ($400/year for joint filers) a year to the Mountain Ridge High School Band and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on their Arizona income taxes. These funds are used to cover the extra band, orchestra, and color guard expenses that are not covered by the school district, such as transportation, instructional staff, music, instruments, and costumes.

The Arizona Tax Credit is an ideal way to fund your student’s Fairshare obligation for the year. You may direct this to benefit a specific student or all students. With one $400 donation, a married couple can send up to $400 to their student’s Fairshare account and get a tax credit for the year.

Ask your friends and relatives to make a Tax Credit donation to the MRHS Band to benefit your student’s Fairshare account! Any Arizona taxpayer can take advantage of the Tax Credit Program and direct their tax dollars directly to the MRHS Band.
