FAQs: ARIZONA TAX CREDIT
What is a tax credit?
A tax credit reduces your tax liability dollar-for-dollar. In other words, a tax credit comes right off the top of your state tax bill, lowering the amount you will pay.
How do I file for the credit?
You or your accountant will complete a simple tax form or in online software. The form is included with materials provided by the State of Arizona to all state tax filers.
How do I document my contribution?
We send you a contribution confirmation letter/email that documents your donation.
Do I have to give $400 to get the tax credit?
You may receive an Arizona state tax credit of up to $800 if you are married and filing jointly, or $400 if you are married and filing separately or a single taxpayer or head of household. But, any amount less than $800 (married) $400 (single) still qualifies! You can also split your tax credit between Qualifying Charitable Organizations of your choice.
Does this tax credit affect the Arizona private and public schools tax credits?
No. This is in addition to the school tax credit programs. You can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for giving to all three tax credit programs! For example, you can give to a public school, a Private School Tuition Organization, and the Qualifying Charitable Organization credit too.
What is the deadline for this donation?
Because calendar year filers have until April 15, 2020, to file their 2019 tax return, these taxpayers also have until April 15, 2020, to make qualifying contributions and claim these credits on their 2019 return.
