Elf is no longer accepting tax-credit contributions. Thanks very much for your support over the years! Families at Kino School are especially grateful and will also miss our help. Please designate "Kino School" with your contribution at APESF or another STO of your choosing.
The Education Liberty Fund (ELF) is a non-profit 501c3 charity organization and School Tuition Organization (STO) certified by the Arizona Department of Revenue to receive tax-credit contributions for private school scholarships.
Arizona Tax-Credit Opportunities
Tax credit contributions are subtracted from what you owe in taxes, dollar-for-dollar.
- Tax-credit contributions increase your refund, or reduce taxes still owed, dollar-for-dollar, by the amount you contribute, up to your income tax amount (estimate your state income tax here).
- Contribution to ELF up to $1135-single or $2269-joint.
- The same ELF contribution also reduces your federal taxable income if you itemize deductions on a 1040-A.
- Contribute up until the April, 15th filing deadline for the previous tax year.
ARS 43-1603(C) NOTICE
A school tuition organization cannot award, restrict or reserve scholarships solely on the basis of donor recommendation. A taxpayer may not claim a tax credit if the taxpayer agrees to swap donations with another taxpayer to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependent.
