Payroll Withholding

Arizona allows individuals to redirect a portion or their entire payroll tax-withholding amount to a School Tuition Organization (like APESF), public school or other charitable organization. This means you can “take the credit” to support school choice without having to provide money up front or in one large sum!

If your employer voluntarily elects to participate, you can request that a portion of your state tax-withholding amount be redirected to APESF, and your employer will make quarterly payments to us on your behalf. APESF will help facilitate this process with your employer. At the end of the year, you will receive a statement from APESF and your employer indicating the total amount of your contribution. Your employer will also send a statement to the Arizona Department of Revenue.
