Most commonly asked questions about this valuable tax credit:
What is the Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit?
This is a charitable contribution you can give to qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations. Through Christian Family Care, you can reduce what you owe in state taxes by $1,000 (couples) or $500 (single filers) – all at no additional cost to you. In other words, you can either pay the State or you can give to at-risk foster children.
Does this tax credit also apply to federal tax returns?
The Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit is only a dollar-for-dollar reduction on your State taxes. You may also be able to claim a federal tax deduction for the amount donated. Check with your tax professional.
What if I don’t owe State taxes?
Charitable Tax Credit dollars may be carried forward for up to five years, reducing future tax liability.
How do I file for the credit?
There will be a simple line that will be included with your state tax form that you or your accountant will complete.
