If you owe taxes to the State of Arizona, you may be eligible for a tax credit of up to $400 ($800 if married filing jointly.) That’s right: Take $400 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 qualifying organizations.) Claim the credit when you file your Arizona return. (You do not have to itemize deductions to claim a credit.) You’ll need to include Form 321 with your return.
