Credit/Deduction Distinctions

Any charitable contribution that is included in itemized deductions on your federal return must be removed from your Arizona itemized deductions if the contributions were claimed as an Arizona credit. Donations made to organizations not listed on the department’s published website are typically allowable as deductions. You cannot claim both a deduction and a credit for the same charitable contribution on your Arizona return.

Criteria for a Qualifying Charitable Organization

  • Must be exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code or a designated community action agency that receives community services block grant program monies pursuant to 42 United States Code Section 9901.
  • Must spend at least 50% of its budget on services to Arizona residents who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families benefits, to Arizona resident low-income households or to chronically ill or physically disabled children who are residents of Arizona.

Annual reports are often available online as well so that you can see how the organization spends its money.
