Frequently asked question about the Arizona tax credit:

Q: What is the Arizona Tax Credit for Charitable Organizations?

A: You may claim a tax credit for voluntary cash contributions you make during taxable year to a qualifying charitable organization.

Q: Can I still take the school and tuition tax credits?

A: Yes! The charitable tax credit is different from the school tax credits. You can donate up to $400 to the charitable tax credit; up to $1,034 for private school tuition; up to $1,028 for certified school tuition and $400 for public school extra-curricular activities. Combine all 4 for significant savings!

Q: How much can I give?

A: Married couples filing jointly can contribute up to $400. Individual filers can contribute up to $200. (This is not the required amount... this is just the maximum you can claim.)

Q: How do I claim the credit?

A: You report the name of the qualifying charitable organization you donated to as well as the dollar amount of your donation to the department of Revenue.

Q: What is the difference between a tax credit and a tax deduction?

A: A tax deduction is an expense that reduces taxable income by a certain percentage. A tax credit, on the other hand reduces your tax liability dollar for dollar.

Q: Do I have to itemize my deductions to claim the credit?

A: Yes. You must itemize deductions on your Arizona State income tax return even though you may not have itemized your deductions on your federal return. The form to use is AZ 321.

Q: Do I claim my Charitable Contribution as a tax credit or a deduction?

A: You may only claim a tax credit for your charitable contributions on your Arizona state return if the organization you donated to is considered a Qualifying Charitable Organization. A complete listing of Qualifying Charitable Organizations is published on the AZ Department of Revenues website. You cannot claim both a deduction and a credit for the same charitable contribution on your Arizona return.
