Arizona taxpayers may still support children in foster care through a donation to Child Crisis Arizona as a Qualifying Foster Care Organization (QFCO) until April 15, 2017* and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against your 2016 state tax liability.
The new limits for 2016 Charitable Foster Care Tax Credit allows for up to $500 for single filers and up to $1,000 married/joint filing.
*Any Arizona tax credit donations made before April 15, 2017 may be counted for either the 2016 or 2017 tax year. However, donations made in 2017 are not deductible on 2016 federal filings. Please consult with a tax adviser. The tax credits are available only to individuals who file taxes in Arizona.
