Charitable Organization Tax Credit

What is the Charitable Organization Tax Credit?

The state of Arizona has a special program that allows residents to direct some of their tax dollars to charities they support.  The AZ Department of Revenue has a list online of approved “Qualifying Charitable Organizations,” and AZA United is approved.  All you have to do is make a donation to AZA United now, and then fill out Form 321 with your state taxes to claim the credit.*  You will then receive a 100% refund for the donation you made when you get your tax refund.* 

Beginning in 2018, the Arizona Department of Revenue has assigned a "QCO Code" to each qualifying charitable organization.  Donors must use this code to claim the tax credit on state income tax returns.  AZA United's QCO Code is: 20353

In 2023, the state of Arizona increased the limit for Charitable Organization Tax Credit donations to $421 for an individual and $841 for a married couple filing jointly. 

A law passed in 2013 allows anyone who files taxes in Arizona to claim this tax credit.  It is separate from other tax credits, such as the private and public/charter school tax credits.  So, that means you can claim them all.

Many corporations will also match employee donations to charities.  Contact your HR department to see if your employer will match your donation!

*Please consult your tax advisor to determine your individual eligibility.
