Control how your Arizona Tax dollars are spent.
The working poor charitable tax credit is available
to anyone who owes or paid state taxes and files a state return.
Taxpayers filing in Arizona have the unique opportunity to actually redirect
a portion of the state tax dollars they already pay to organizations that provide
help to the working poor - all at no additional financial cost to themselves!
This tax code allows for donations to qualifying organizations
be returned to the taxpayer not as a deduction but as a tax credit!
The most common amount of this credit is $200 for single taxpayers or heads of household.
For married taxpayers, the maximum credit is $400. For organizations working
with foster children, the amounts are doubled.
