School Tax Credits for Individuals

Who can donate?

“Any Arizona taxpayer, who has a tax liability, may give to support this program by redirection of their tax dollars paid to the state of Arizona.” -NACSSF

Your AZ tax credit donation is a redirection of the money you paid in taxes to the state of Arizona.  This donation does not come out of your AZ tax refund. It is a dollar for dollar tax credit, not a deduction.

How do I utilize this tax credit on my taxes?

VCA works with the NACSSF (Northern Arizona Christian School Scholarship Fund)

After you claim the tax credit in your AZ taxes you can make a donation by using any one of the following options:

  1. Mail a completed NACSSF pamphlet (you can pick a pamphlet at our school office) with your donation to:

NACSSF

P.O Box 3923, Cottonwood, AZ 86326

  1. Go to nacssf.org to contribute online
  2. Bring your donation and completed NACSSF pamphlet into the school office

How does this the Arizona Tax Credit support VCA?

The monies given to NACSSF in recommendation for VCA are then redistributed by NACSSF to pay for the tuition of students enrolled at Verde Christian Academy.
