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
The state of Arizona limit for Charitable Organization Tax Credit donations is $400 for an individual and $800 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.
