The proceeds of the gift can be designated as an outright cash gift. To find out more about this program please call Barbra Smith at (602) 331-1470, Ext. 102.
1.) Arizona Charitable Tax Credit - Arizona Tax Credit for Contributions to Charities that provide assistance to the Working Poor and Disabled Children: Because of the special services we provide to the community, FBC qualifies for the Charitable Tax Credit. Arizona provides a tax credit for cash contributions made to qualifying charitable organizations that provide help to the working poor and disabled. Every Arizona taxpayer who itemizes deductions is eligible by donating up to $ 400 as a married couple or $ 200 if filing separately. The taxpayer receives a dollar for dollar credit, as opposed to a deduction, against their Arizona tax liability. You can also include it as a charitable deduction on your Federal return. Arizona taxpayers have until December 31st to make their contributions. The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit gives every taxpayer an opportunity to win three ways: (1) Assist the working poor in Arizona (2) Assist the Foundation for Blind Children in fulfilling its mission of helping children and their families to achieve in spite of vision loss and (3) Receive a dollar for dollar tax credit against their Arizona tax liability.
Your $400 donation can provide a blind baby with services for nearly six months!
