AZ TAX CREDIT
Qualifying Charitable Tax Credit
Donate by April 15th to receive a tax credit on 2016 taxes.
You can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for your donation to Cancer Support Community. An individual receives $400 and those filed jointly receive $800 tax credit. Formerly known as the Working Poor Credit, it is now officially the Credit for Donations made to Qualifying Charitable Organizations. Cancer Support Community Arizona is one of these qualifying organizations!
The Arizona Tax Credit law specifically describes this tax credit as donations made to Qualifying Charitable Organizations.
These donations enable Cancer Support Community Arizona to open many doors to hope, courage, and community for those impacted by cancer. To encourage and reward tax payers for their support to the social sector, Arizona grants a tax credit to these tax payers.
