The State of Arizona allows you to claim tax credits, not only for donations to public and private schools, but for donations to non-profit organizations that support the working poor. It’s called the Arizona Working Poor Tax Credit.
A tax credit gift to ARC before the end of a calendar year qualifies taxpayers for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their tax returns. Couples filing jointly can qualify for a credit of up to $800 and individuals filing singly can qualify for a credit of up to $400. You can claim this credit in addition to any credits you claim for donations to schools.
Your employer or former employer might match your gift. Contact your personnel or human resources department and ask if they offer a matching gifts or matching funds program. If they do, simply get the form, fill it out and send it to ARC : 3003 S. Country Club Road, Suite 219, Tucson, AZ 85713.
