FAQs about the 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 AZ Form 321, a simple tax form. 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 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, and the qualifying charitable organization credit too – meaning you can take $200/$400/$400 – for a total of $800 per individual or $1,600 for a couple filing jointly.

How does this tax credit impact my ability to take a federal tax deduction?

Your contribution can be included as a deduction on your federal tax return, reducing your taxable income, maybe even resulting in decreased Federal taxes! To claim the tax deduction on your federal taxes for 2017, donations must be made before December 31st.

What is the deadline for this donation? 

Because calendar year filers have until April 17, 2018, to file their 2017 tax return, these taxpayers also have until April 17, 2018, to make qualifying contributions and claim these credits on their 2016 return.

Arizona’s Tax Credit program allows you to redirect your tax dollars to qualifying organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix. 100% of your money goes to programs you believe in and 100% comes back to you as a tax credit.

You can make your donation now and you can use that tax credit to pay what you owe to the State or you’ll get a bigger tax refund.  You can make your tax credit eligible donation any time before April 18, 2018.

Arizona taxpayers are eligible for $400 tax credit single* $800 tax credit married*

*Take charge of your tax dollars with the Contributions to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (Formerly known as the Working Poor Tax Credit).  You can split your donations among multiple nonprofits under the Qualifying Charitable Organizations programs, totally $400 for single filers and $800 for those filing jointly, i.e.: $100 to Healthcare Organization A and $300 to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix for a total of $400.  

You can make a huge difference to Arizona children by directing your tax dollars to the Contributions to Qualifying Charitable Organizations Tax Credit, including BGCMP, as well as the public and private school tax credits.  There’s more information on these programs at azdor.gov. You can also consult your tax professional.
