The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit program allows you to make a donation to an eligible organization and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit against Arizona state taxes owed.
Arizona law provides an income tax credit for cash contributions made to certain charities that provide help to the working poor.
A qualifying charity is one that is exempt from federal income tax under IRS Code Section 501(c)(3). The charity must be qualified and designated by the Arizona Department of Revenue.
