Arizona Working Poor Tax Credit


Current Arizona tax code allows for charitable donations of up to $400 per married taxpayers filing jointly and up to $200 per taxpayer filling as single to be redirected to a qualifying charity and returned to the taxpayer not as a deduction but as a credit! 

Taxpayers filing in Arizona have the unique opportunity to actually redirect a portion of the state tax dollars they already pay into charitable channels at no additional financial cost to themselves! Rio Vista Center is a qualified charitable organization under the state charitable tax credit program. Click here to see the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit certification.

The credit allowed for married taxpayers is $400
The credit allowed for single taxpayers is $200
