Now you can decide where your tax dollars go.

The State of Arizona has designated the Arizona Foster Care Charitable Organization Tax Credit to help at-risk foster children while also reducing your state income tax. What this means is that your donation is a ‘dollar-for-dollar’ tax credit on your Arizona taxes. So a gift of $100 means a $100 tax credit! This makes it easy for you to donate to a great cause and at the same time reduce what you owe the state in taxes and get that money back as a credit!

All donations must be received by the tax filing deadline for the tax credit to apply to the current tax year. Here’s how it works:

  • Donate up to $1,000 (for married couples filing jointly) or $500 (for individuals) by the tax filing deadline.
  • You will receive a donation acknowledgement letter from the Sunshine Angels for tax purposes.
  • Arizona State Income Tax filing: No need to itemize to claim credit. Your state income tax will be reduced by the amount of your donation to the Sunshine Angels.
  • Taxpayers may utilize several tax credits each year for other categories. For example you can use a tax credit for Arizona Foster Care as well as for qualifying charitable organizations, public and charter schools, private schools, etc.
