There are five different AZ tax credits; you can donate to as many of them as you like.
Single taxpayers may claim a tax credit of up to $400 and married taxpayers filling jointly may claim a tax credit of up to $800 for donations made to qualified organizations listed on the ADOR website. Donations made to qualifying “umbrella” organizations are also deductible.
There are two private school tuition tax credits. The first is called the “Credit for Contributions to Private School Tuition Organizations. Single taxpayers may contribute up to $552 and married taxpayers filing jointly may contribute up to $1,110 for tax year 2018.
Once the maximum is reached on this credit, an additional credit becomes available: the Credit for Contributions to Certified School Tuition Organization Credit. The amounts for this credit are an additional $552 (single) and $1,103 (married) for 2018. Between the two credits, a single taxpayer may claim a credit of up to $1,107 and married taxpayers filing jointly may claim a credit of up to $2,213. Unused amounts may be carried forward for up to five consecutive years.
Note that your donation to the school tuition organization will not qualify for the credits if you designate the donation for your dependent. If you designate a non-dependent beneficiary, your donation will qualify for the AZ Tax Credit; however, it will not qualify as a charitable contribution on your Federal tax return. The IRS considers this a gift.
Single taxpayers may claim a tax credit of up to $500 and married taxpayers filling jointly may claim a tax credit of up to $1,000 for donations made by qualified organizations listed on the ADOR website.
Single taxpayers may contribute up to $200 and married taxpayers filing jointly may contribute up to $400 to the Military Family Relief Fund administered by the Arizona Department of Veteran’s Services.
Unused amounts may not be used in a future year.
Donations made to the fund will qualify for the credit if the total amount donated to the fund during the calendar year has not exceeded one million dollars.
