What about the Arizona Tax Credit?
With this useful tax credit, you can assist Arizona Veterans in need while also enjoying a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona state tax return. This charity fund has a $1 million cap for refundable Arizona tax credits, so it’s best to get your contribution in early during the year. Once $1 million in donations is reached, contributions will be considered charitable donations, not tax credits, therefore it's best to send your donation in early, so you are ensured a credit on your Arizona tax return.
