Frequently Asked Questions

What is the tax credit for charitable organizations?

You may claim a tax credit for voluntary cash contributions you make during any taxable year to a Qualifying Charitable Organization. A Qualifying Charitable Organization is a charity that is a 501(c)(3) or a community action agency that receives community services block grant program monies that spends at least 50% of its budget on services to Arizona residents who either receive temporary assistance for needy families (TANF) benefits, are low income residents whose household income is less than 150% of the federal poverty level, or are chronically ill or physically disabled children and shows that the charity plans to continue spending at least 50% of its budget on services to those described above. A charity has to apply for and meet all requirements of the law to be considered as a Qualifying Charitable Organization. Approved charities’ names are listed on the Department of Revenue’s website.

How do I claim the tax credit?

The credit is only available to individuals. Either pay above through PayPal or download the form and email or fax it in. Then, you report the name of the Qualifying Charitable Organization you donated to (Arizona Dental Foundation) as well as the dollar amount of your donation to the Department of Revenue on Form 321.

Do I have to itemize deductions to claim the tax credit?

Nope! Any individual filer is eligible for the Arizona charitable tax credit.

Do I claim my charitable contribution as a tax credit or a deduction?

Your donation to the Arizona Dental Foundation is valid for a tax <em>credit</em>! For married filers, you may claim a credit of up to $400. For single filers, you may claim up to $200. However, you cannot claim both a deduction and a credit <em>for the same charitable contribution</em> on your Arizona return.

But I already claim the Arizona public school tax credit! Can I still claim a tax credit for my donation to the Arizona Dental Foundation?

Yes!! As an Arizona taxpayer, you can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for BOTH the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit and the Arizona Public School Tax Credit.
