TVUSD Notice of CTDS Numbers Needed for Arizona State Income Tax Filing, for Arizona Public School Tax Credit Contributions
February 15, 2019
Dear TVUSD Tax Credit Donor,
Thank you for your support of students and programs in the Tanque Verde Unified School District through your 2018 Arizona Public School Tax Credit contribution.
It has come to our attention that changes to the Arizona Dept. of Revenue electronic information system are affecting some Arizona State Income Tax filers. The changes are specifically related to the designation of public school names and CTDS numbers. The CTDS is a nine (9) digit number that the Arizona Department of Education uses to identify Arizona public and charter schools.
The new system implemented by the State now requires the specific school name and number, rather than the district number. In addition, the school name must exactly match how it appears on the Arizona Dept. of Education School Listing.
For your convenience, we are supplying the specific designations for each of the schools in the Tanque Verde Unified School District.

What is the Arizona state tax
credit for public schools?
Arizona law provides a tax credit for contributions
to public schools to support extracurricular
activities or character education.
To be eligible for a 2018 state tax credit,
your contribution must be received or
postmarked by April 16, 2019!
Arizona Public School Tax Credit contributions may be made through April 16, 2019 and still qualify for 2018 state tax filings. For contributions made between December 31, 2018 and April 16, 2019, the contribution may be subtracted from EITHER your 2018 or 2019 Arizona state tax bill. Contributions made after April 16, 2019 would be eligible only for 2019 state tax filings.
You can help Tanque Verde Unified School District students and possibly lower your tax bill by making a donation.
|How does it work?|
If you qualify for this state tax credit, you may write a check or use your credit card to make a 2018 OR 2019 Tax Year contribution before April 16, 2019. When you file your Arizona state taxes, you then subtract the amount of your contribution from what you owe or add the amount to your refund.
- If you owe $800 in Arizona state taxes: Make a $400 contribution to a Tanque Verde public school, and subtract $400 from your Arizona state taxes. Your tax bill will then be $400.
- If you are expecting an $800 refund on your Arizona state taxes: Make a $400 contribution to a Tanque Verde Public School, and add $400 to your Arizona state tax refund. Your refund will be $1,200.
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. It is always best to consult a tax adviser to see if you qualify for the dollar-for-dollar credit.
A tax credit is different from a deduction, because you may subtract the whole contribution from your Arizona state tax bill. 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.
Please note: ECA donations are not refundable.
Your tax credit donation will help make a tough budgetary time a little easier on projects and programs here in our schools. If you have questions about tax credit donations, please call the District
Business Office at 749-5751, extension 4106.
