Since 2006, The Corporate Tuition Tax Credit allows C-Corporations, S-Corporations, Insurance companies that collect premiums and LLC’s who file their state taxes as a C-Corp or an S-Corp to redirect 100% of their state tax liability to qualified Student Tuition Organizations serving private schools, such as Catholic Education Arizona (CEA). This program is a dollar for dollar credit against taxes owed the state of Arizona. These funds are dedicated exclusively to the support of tuition costs for low income or underserved students.

How it Works

Does my company qualify to direct my state corporate income tax liability or insurance premium tax to a school tuition organization?

Types of companies that qualify:

  • C-Corp
  • S-Corp
  • LLC or PLLC filing as an S-Corp or C-Corp
  • Insurance Companies that collect premiums.

Consult with your CPA regarding your tax structure.

Identify your corporate income tax liability or insurance premium tax to the State of Arizona.

Complete the Corporate Tax Credit Commitment Form and submit to CEA. We submit all applications to the Arizona Department of Revenue when tax credit dollars are available.

CEA will send your form to the Arizona Department of Revenue. Your corporation then has twenty days to make payment to Catholic Education Arizona for their tax credit contribution.

Your corporation lists the credit on the standard 120 form and files a 335 form attached to the return.
