Tax Credit FAQs

Do I have to itemize to claim Charitable Tax Credits?
No, you do not have to itemize deductions to claim a credit for contributions.

Can I take the Working Poor Tax Credit if I take the School Tax Credit?
Yes, they are separate credits and you are allowed to take advantage of both.

How do I know Habitat 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 www.azdor.gov.

Have the donation amounts changed for the tax credit?
Yes, there has been an increase in the amount you can claim on your 2023 and 2024 taxes

The maximum QCO credit donation amount for 2023:
$421 single, married filing separate or head of household; $841 married filing joint.

The maximum QCO credit donation amount for 2024:
$470 single, married filing separate or head of household; $938 married filing joint.

Please Note: Arizona law allows QCO donations made during 2023 or donations made from January 1, 2024 through April 15, 2024 to be claimed on the 2023 Arizona income tax return. The maximum credit that can be claimed on the 2023 Arizona return for donations made to QCO’s is $421 for single, married filing separate or head of household taxpayers, and $841 for married filing joint taxpayers. If a taxpayer makes a QCO donation from January 1, 2024 through April 15, 2024 and wants to claim the higher 2024 maximum credit amount, the taxpayer will need to claim the credit on the 2024 Arizona return filed in 2025.
