Yes, It’s True –
You can direct your state tax dollars to support the work of local charities!
In Arizona, you choose where your money goes!
We are a group of organizations who joined forces to promote the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit. Our efforts have resulted in increased awareness and donations to nonprofits across Southern Arizona. While many other worthwhile nonprofits also qualify for the tax credit, the select group represented here consistently demonstrates a shared set of values and actively contributes to our ongoing awareness efforts.
Choose one or more charities and follow the link to make a one-time donation, or set up recurring donations.
Claim your credit when you file your taxes.
• The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit allows you to donate to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (QCO’s) and Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization (QFCO’s) and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against your state income taxes owed.
• For a QCO, donate up to $400 for individuals, up to $800 for a married couple, filing jointly.
• For a QFCO, donate up to $500 for individuals, up to $1,000 for a married couple, filling jointly. You can donate to a private school, public school and to the military as well as to a QCO/QCFO.
