AzDA Cares Foundation Needs Your Charitable Tax Credit

Utilizing the Arizona Tax Credit donation for the AzDA Cares Foundation is a meaningful way to make a difference in your community while also reaping financial benefits. By directing your charitable contributions to this foundation, you not only support essential dental healthcare services for underserved individuals and families in Arizona but also gain a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your state income taxes, which can significantly reduce your tax liability. This dual benefit allows you to amplify your charitable impact while also enjoying a tangible financial advantage, making it a smart and compassionate choice for those seeking to maximize the impact of their charitable giving.

What is Arizona's Charitable Tax Credit?

Formerly referred to as the “Working Poor” tax credit, the Charitable Tax Credit in Arizona offers taxpayers the opportunity to claim a dollar-for-dollar credit when they make contributions to eligible charitable organizations.

When is the deadline to make a tax credit donation?

Donations made to a Qualifying Charitable Organization on or before April 15th can be applied to either the current or the preceding taxable year for your Arizona State tax return.

To qualify for your federal tax return, donations must be completed by December 31 of the respective tax year.

How much can I contribute?

To receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona state taxes, donors can contribute a maximum of $421* for single taxpayers or heads of household and $842* for couples filing jointly.  If you’d like to donate more to the AzDA Cares Foundation, please use this donation page.

*Please note that the maximum allowable amounts have changed for the 2023 Arizona state filings.

I already donate to my child’s school. Can I claim this credit, too?

Absolutely! There are four distinct qualified areas eligible for a tax credit, and you can claim each of them in the same tax year, up to your tax liability from that year:

  1. Qualified Charitable Organization (AzDA Cares Foundation)
  2. Qualified Foster Care Charitable Organization
  3. Public School
  4. School Tuition Organization

This enables you to claim a tax credit equal to the amount of your donation on your state income taxes. If you’re married and file jointly, you can receive a tax credit of up to $841, while single or head of household filers can claim up to $421.
