The TSO & Tax Credit
Tax credit is a dollar for dollar reduction on the taxes you owe the state of Arizona.
Tax credit dollars raised through the TSO tax credit initiative go directly to public schools choosing to participate in TSO education programs, to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate and to supplement funding from Title I schools and those in underserved areas.
NOTE: Tax credit is NOT a donation to the Tucson Symphony Orchestra.
