Arizona has several tax credits which allow eligible individuals to decide how a portion of their tax dollars are spent. One of those tax credits is the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit (ARS 43-1088). This credit allows you to contribute to a Qualifying Charitable Organization, such as the Prescott Sunrise Lions Foundation, and have your Arizona tax liability reduced dollar-for-dollar.
Anyone who has an Arizona tax liability is eligible to claim this credit. You no longer need to itemize your deductions to be eligible.
“Single” and “Head of Household” taxpayers can claim a credit up to $421, and “Married” taxpayers can claim a credit up to $841. Please note that the listed amounts are the maximum. If you are an eligible individual, you can contribute a lesser amount if you don’t exceed the $421 or $841 thresholds.
