AZ Tax Credit
“Take the Credit” for helping change lives!
Donate Today and “Take the Credit” for Changing Lives!
Did you know you can “take credit” for helping change the lives of vulnerable women and teen girls in Arizona? Arizona law provides a credit for cash contributions made to qualifying charities that provide help to the working poor. In 2016, the qualifying amounts were increased and the amount of this credit is now $400 for single taxpayers or heads of household. For married taxpayers, the maximum credit is $800. You can give to this tax credit as well as to those related to foster care and education!
In order to take advantage of this opportunity to direct your tax dollars you must:
- Give up to $800 ($400 if single/head of household) to a qualifying 501 (c) (3) organization of your choice. Hope Women’s Center is a qualifying organization!
- Keep a written receipt of your gift for tax records. (You no longer need to itemize).
- A credit is possible only if you have an Arizona tax obligation and the credit claimed is less than your Arizona tax obligation.
- Beginning in 2016, donations can now be postmarked on or before April 15th for the previous tax year!
