How the Arizona Tax Credit Works
When you file your Arizona taxes, you can claim a dollar-for-dollar Arizona Charitable Tax Credit that will either reduce your tax liability or increase your refund.
2 Ways 2 Give
1. Qualifying Charitable Organization Tax Credit, single filers maximum gift $400 and married filers up to $800. Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley, Arizona State QCO Code: 20331 on AZDOR Form 321
2. Public School Tax Credit, single filers maximum gift $200 and married filers up to $400. Mesa Arts Academy, School Tax Credit TDS Code: 078613101 on AZDOR Form 322
If a couple owes a $1,000 in state income tax, and donates $800, they may subtract the $800 from their tax bill and pay the state only $200
If they owe NOTHING in Arizona state income taxes, and donate $800, they will get a refund of at least $800 back from the state — what a great way to give to BGCAZ AND MAA get money back, dollar for dollar!
The Tax Credit is available to you even if you do not itemize your deductions on your taxes. Plus you can take advantage of BOTH tax credits.
If you make your direct contribution to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley, or Mesa Arts Academy, it must be received prior to your tax filing.
