Giving to Literacy Connects is easy and FREE with a tax credit

If you owe taxes to the State of Arizona, you may be eligible for a tax credit of up to $200 ($400 if married filing jointly.) That’s right: Take $200 right off the taxes you owe. NOTE: This credit can be claimed in addition to tax credits for gifts to public and private schools.

How it works:

  • Cash gifts made to Literacy Connects qualify for the tax credit. (Donations must be made to organizations that serve the working poor.)
  • Claim the credit when you file your Arizona return. (Starting with the 2013 tax year, you do not have to itemize deductions to claim a credit.) You’ll need to include Form 321 with your return.
