Tax Credit Donations FAQ’s

Tax Credit Donations Support your School and lower your taxes!

Arizona law provides a tax credit for contributions to public schools to support extracurricular activities or character education. A Tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in your Arizona income tax liability. An individual may contribute as much as $200, and a couple filing jointly may contribute as much as $400 to a public school and receive the money back in the form of a tax credit.

The state tax credit is available to ALL qualifying individual Arizona state taxpayers, you do not need to have a child enrolled in a school to take advantage of this state tax credit. Contributions may be made until April 15, 2018 for your 2017 Arizona state tax return. Any contributions made before January 1st may also be used as charitable tax deductions on your 2017 federal return. Any contributions after January 1st would be eligible for your 2018 federal return.

Contributions to Leman Academy of Excellence’s extracurricular activities are eligible for Arizona tax credits. Extracurricular activities are optional, noncredit programs such as educational field trips, character enrichment programs, athletics, musical theater and any other supplemental programs.

The Arizona State Tax Credit is not a deduction- it’s a tax credit and you do not need to itemize. For example if you are married and filing jointly and owe $800 in state income tax, you can make a school tax credit contribution for $400 and receive a $400 credit on your Arizona income tax return.  For details on the AZ Tax Credits for "Contributions made or fees paid to Public Schools" go to www.azdor.gov.  You can also look under the Forms Tab for AZ Forms 322 and 301.  Please consult with your Tax Advisor about your ability to participate.

Parker, Colorado

The Leman Classical School Board in Parker, CO is honored to collaborate with the Douglas County School District Board of Education to open Leman Academy of Excellence, a Classical education choice for families and scholars. This collaboration was formalized on November 8, 2016 with a contract from the DCSD Board of Education that authorizes the Leman Classical School Board to open and operate Leman Academy of Excellence in Parker, Colorado. On March 17, 2017 the DCSD BOE revisited the contract and extended the school opening date to August 2018.

Construction on a new, K-8 facility is well underway at the southwest corner of Parker and Stroh Roads. A groundbreaking celebration was held with Dr. Kevin Leman and our school principal Dr. Jason Edwards on September 26th. The facility is really coming together and we hope to see external walls before the holidays!

Following the lottery, any grades that have available seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis. For grades that have a wait list, new scholars will be placed on the waitlist in the order enrollment forms are received.
