Contributions are to the school of your choice. Gilbert Public Schools has many extracurricular activities or programs that can benefit from these funds! Extracurricular activity means any optional, noncredit activity that supplements the education program of the school. Activities such as field trips, after-school enrichment programs, character education, clubs, athletics, visual & performing arts, and in-state or out-of-state trips solely for competitive events can be funded with tax credit money. Please know that this also means that students should not be given "homework" or any graded assignments as a result of the activity. Senior trips or events that are recreational, amusement, or tourist activities CANNOT be funded with tax credit money.
- Tax credit contributions must be postmarked, or electronically submitted by April 15th of each year in order to be applicable for the prior tax year. This gives the tax payer about 3 and half more months to make the contribution as opposed to the previous December 31st deadline. A tax credit receipt will be mailed to you.
Please consider making your tax credit contribution to a Gilbert Public School!
