When you donate to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the ARIZONA CHARITABLE TAX CREDIT allows you to receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit if you itemize your deductions on your Arizona state income tax return. You can receive a tax credit of up to $400 when filing a joint tax return, or up to $200 when filing a single tax return. Besides the tax credit, you’ll receive the added satisfaction of knowing your money is going to help the working poor.
What does this mean?
It costs you nothing to donate to the good work of St. Vincent de Paul! A tax credit reduces your final tax liability. It comes right off the top of your state tax bill, reducing the amount of money you will pay. So although your charitable contributions increase, your tax liability is decreased by the same amount—up to $400.
There is a simple form (AZ Form 321) that you must complete and include with your state tax filing in order to receive that tax credit. This form is available online at www.azdor.gov.
The ARIZONA CHARITABLE TAX CREDIT does not affect the tax credit available for private school tuition and public school extra-curricular activities.
