Arizona taxpayers have an opportunity to redirect a portion of their state tax dollars to organizations providing help to others. Under the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit, households can reduce their direct tax liability by $800 for couples or $400 for individuals when they give to qualifying non-profits in the community. Under the Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit, the amount is doubled to $1,000 and $500 when giving to a qualifying foster care organization.
Scottsdale Bible partners with several faith-based non-profits that qualify for these tax credits. The organizations listed here qualify for these tax credits. When you make a contribution to one of these ministry partners, you not only benefit from a dollar-for-dollar tax credit, but you also help support the wonderful work they are doing to restore wholeness and demonstrate Jesus’ love and grace to the adults, children and families they serve.
Please consider how you can make a difference in the lives of others by taking advantage of the Arizona Charitable and Foster Care Tax Credits. For more information, click here.
