ACSTO Donation
Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization (ACSTO)

The tax credit laws specifically describe the allowance of a tax credit for donations made to organizations like ACSTO (

When you give, you are making a donation, and Arizona will grant a tax credit in return for that donation when you file your tax return.

2019 Donation Amounts

For Tax Year 2019, a Married Couple filing jointly can claim a maximum credit of up to $2269, a Single taxpayer up to $1135, or their total tax liability, whichever is less. These amounts are the total of Arizona’s two Private School Tax Credits—Original and Overflow.

When giving to ACSTO, donors can give up to $1138/$569 (married/single) towards the Original Tax Credit. Any donation above this amount will then go towards the Overflow Tax Credit, up to a maximum of an additional $1131/$566. When you donate through ACSTO’s Donor Portal, it automatically totals the amounts for Original and Overflow so you don’t have to!
