It's not too late to be planning for your Arizona tax credits for the 2015 filing season!
The Public School Credit still stands at $200/$400 for single/married filers. New this year, however, is the timing! Beginning in 2016, contributions made to a public school from January 1 to April 15 of a calendar year may used as a credit on the prior year's return...or you can fund the credit for your 2016 taxes anytime this year. The Private School Tuition Credit has been increased for 2015 to $1,067 for single filers and $2,134 for married filing joint returns. This can be paid by year end, or up to April 15, 2016 to still qualify for a 2015 credit.
Also, be sure to ask us about the expanded Qualifying Charitable Organization credit. Effective with the 2013 filing season, this credit now includes certain qualifying foster care charitable organizations, giving the potential between the two for $400 worth of credits for single filers ($800 for married filing jointly.) Both the lists for foster care and the qualifying charitable organizations are growing so there are lots of great possibilities to choose from.
The Arizona Military Family Relief Fund is closed for 2015 but it will be available during 2016 for next year's taxes. It qualifies for a $200/$400 credit as well but this fund closes each year once it hits the million dollar mark in donations, and that's typically in mid-December.
Give us a call if you have any questions about any of the Arizona tax credits!
