New Tax Credit Law Increases Support Levels of Charitable Tax Credit

Child Crisis Arizona and the families and children we serve would like to thank Governor Ducey and Arizona State Legislators for enacting SB 1216 which increases the amounts allowed for charitable tax credits:

  1. The Qualifying Charitable Organizations tax credit has increased from $200 to $400 for an individual and from $400 to $800 for married couples
  2. The Foster Care tax credit has increased from $400 for an individual to $500 and from $800 to $1000 for married couples

This now allows you, to redirect your state tax dollars, up to $900 as an individual and $1800 as a married couple, to Child Crisis Arizona.

A disruption occurs when a child is moved unexpectedly from a foster home. A foster family contacts their licensing agency to request the child be removed from their home. When this happens, a child is moved immediately to another foster home, group home or shelter.
