AZ Charitable Tax Credit



5 Quick Facts about the Charitable Tax Credit for Qualifying Organizations

JFCS is a qualifying organization to receive your Charitable Tax Credit donation of up to $800/couple or $400/individual. We do not accept the Foster Care Tax Credit.

Everyone Qualifies

Anyone who files income taxes in Arizona can claim the credit, simply by making a contribution to JFCS! You do not need to itemize.

Take multiple tax credits

In the same year, you may take advantage of multiple tax credits: the Charitable Tax Credit, Public School Tax Credit, Private School Tuition Credit, the Foster Care Credit, and more.
