Girls on the Run serving Maricopa & Pinal Counties is a Qualifying Charitable Organization for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit (QCO Code 20754). This means that if you make a donation up to $800 per married couple filing jointly or $400 per individual, you can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit.
For example, if your state taxes owed were $950 and you made a qualifying donation of $400, you would reduce the amount of state taxes you owe to $550. This means that your donation cost you nothing and you had a say in where your tax dollars are spent.
No itemizing is necessary to take advantage of this tax credit! And, you can combine this credit with others including public and private school credits.
