This site is designed to help Arizona taxpayers take advantage of all the credits available to them when filing state income taxes.
How It Works: The state of Arizona offers its taxpayers the opportunity to make contributions to schools and non-profit organizations that reduce the amount of tax owed to the state or increase the amount of the taxpayer’s refund, dollar-for-dollar. There is NO NET COST to the donor, and deserving individuals around the state benefit. There are three main communities tax credit donations serve, and donors can contribute to any or all of them. To learn more about each, use the above navigation menu.
NOTE TO DONOR: You must have a tax liability for at least the amount of your donation in order to take a tax credit. In other words, if you only owe $500 to the state of Arizona, you cannot receive $1,000 in tax credits. If you do not owe Arizona taxes this year but feel you will in the next few years, you have the option to carry forward your school tax credits for up to five consecutive taxable years.
