Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to itemize to claim Charitable Tax Credits?

You do not have to itemize deductions to claim a credit for contributions.

Can I take the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit if I take the School Tax Credit and Foster Care Tax Credit?

Yes, they are separate credits and you are allowed to take advantage of any or all.

Does the tax credit also apply to my federal income tax returns?

No. The Charitable Tax Credit applies only on your Arizona State income tax. However, you may be able to claim a federal tax deduction for the amount donated.

How do I know TCH qualifies for the credit under this program?

Qualifying organizations are required to send the Department of Revenue a self-certification letter stating that they meet all qualifying criteria. The Department in turn publishes a list of self-certified organizations. You can request a list from Department of Revenue in Phoenix at 602.255.3381 or you can go to the Arizona Department of Revenue website at
