Want to choose where your tax dollars are going? Get a direct dollar-for-dollar credit when you take advantage of the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit.
The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit gives you the unique opportunity to direct your tax dollars to local, qualifying charities and organizations that matter to you. For each dollar donated, you get either a credit to reduce your tax liability or a reimbursement to increase your tax refund. So technically, it doesn’t cost you a penny!
