Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit Donation

In Arizona, YOU decide where your tax dollars go.

For 2017 you are now allowed to “redirect” up to $1000 to help foster children through the Arizona Charitable Foster Care Tax Credit. Christian Family Care serves over 1,700 children a year and is qualified to receive donations that can be used as a tax credit on the returns.

Your gift is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit, which is more valuable than a tax deduction. A tax credit will help reduce your overall state tax liability and is not impacted by your tax withholdings during the course of the year*. If you withheld more than what you owed, the credit will result in an increase in your state tax refund. If you have no Arizona tax liability for the current year, you may carry the tax credit forward for up to five years. And, you do not have to itemize on your state taxes – so even working teens can give!

Take full advantage of this tax credit opportunity and thereby help the 18,000 children in foster care. Thank you!

*Please consult your tax advisor.
