Your Donation Qualifies for an AZ Charitable Tax Credit

Direct your tax dollars to the programs you care about

All taxpayers can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit of up to $800 joint and $400 individual on Arizona State Taxes!

  • NO, you don't have to itemize
  • YES, you can donate to this AND to the public school, private school and other tax credits
  • YES, you can use the same donation as a deduction on your federal return

How does the tax credit work?

Make a contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona. To do this, please select one of the options below:

Get a receipt - You will receive a receipt automatically if you donate online, otherwise, we will mail you a receipt once your gift has been received and processed.

When you fill out your Arizona tax return, complete the very simple Form 321 and deduct the amount of your gift, up to $400 per individual or $800 per couple filing jointly, from what you owe in state taxes for the year.**

Remember to include your charitable donation on your federal tax return and you can end up getting back more than you gave!

**Arizona State Income Tax Credits are available based on your income tax filing status. Big Brothers Big Sisters is not a tax advisor. As with any financial recommendation, contact a qualified tax professional for expert advice on your specific tax situation. Visit the Arizona Department of Revenue website for more information.
