Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit

Arizona Foster Care Tax CreditIn Arizona,
you decide where
your tax dollars go.

Exciting News! The Governor has signed a bill that increases the Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit to $1000 for couples filing jointly and $500 for individuals. This bill also separates out and creates a new tax credit for those contributions.

The Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit helps at-risk foster children and reduces your state income tax. Your donation is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona taxes up $1000. So a gift of $25 means a $25 tax credit!

Take your tax credit today!
  • A tax credit can reduce what you owe in state taxes by $1000 (married couples) or $500 (single filers).
  • Even a child with a part-time job, filing a simple form is able to redirect their taxes.

  • Taxpayers may utilize several tax credits each year: Arizona Foster Care, Private School, and Public School.

One way to make a difference in the lives of children is through the Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit.  This is not a tax deduction, rather a tax credit. The tax credit is available only to individuals and residents who file taxes in Arizona.
