There are four tax credits available to each and every State of Arizona taxpayer
|Qualified Charitable Organization that assists the working poor
|Fees or donations to Public Schools
|Foster Care Organizations
|Private Tuition Organizations
|Secondary credit for Private Tuition Organizations (switcher/overflow)
|Total Private Tuition org credits available are the sum of these two
Timing of your donations
All tax credit donations can be donated up until April 15th of the following year and applied back to the prior year.
Rules and Considerations for Tax Credits
The credits are NON REFUNDABLE by the state. You can be refunded UP TO your total tax to the state (effectively refunding you the state withholding that you have paid in) but any tax credit donations made that are in excess of your total state tax obligation will be carried forward to the following tax year.
For example, if you are married and make the maximum contribution of all credits, it would total $4,901.00. This would come directly off your State of AZ tax bill.
