Arizona 2019 Individual Charitable Tax Credits

Arizona has a robust system of state charitable tax credits that permit taxpayers to direct their state tax dollars to the community organizations that they value most. Arizona's charitable tax credits have become important sources of revenue for qualifying Arizona charities and public schools. However, Arizona's charitable tax credit scheme is subject to frequent changes and while a boon for charities, it can be confusing for taxpayers. For individual taxpayers, the 2019 Arizona charitable tax credits are as follows:

Public Schools (AZ Form 322)

Private School Tuition Organizations (AZ Form 323)

Certified School Tuition Organizations (AZ Form 348)

Qualifying Charitable Organizations (AZ Form 321)

Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organizations (AZ Form 352)

Donations made on or before April 15, 2020, may be applied to either 2019 or 2020 and are considered to have been made on December 31, 2019, for state purposes. Credits are non-refundable. Unused credits carry forward for 5 years.
