Contributions to Qualifying Charitable Organizations

An individual income tax credit is available for contributions to Qualifying Charitable Organizations that provide assistance to residents of Arizona who either receive Temporary Assistance of Needy Families (TANF) benefits, are low income residents of Arizona, or are children who have a chronic illness or physical disability.  In addition, a Qualifying Charitable Organization may be considered a Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization if it meets additional criteria in serving qualified individuals.  This page provides a current listing of Qualifying Charitable Organizations and Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organizations, details about the tax credit, information for taxpayers who want to claim the tax credit, and information for charities who want to apply to become considered as a Qualifying Charitable Organization or Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization.

Starting with the 2013 tax year, taxpayers do not have to itemize deductions to claim a credit for contributions to a Qualifying Charitable Organization or Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization.  For 2012 and prior, taxpayers were required to itemize deductions on their Arizona return in order to claim a credit for contributions to a Qualifying Charitable Organization.
