Your Arizona Tax Credit Can Help Science of Sport Impact More Students Throughout Arizona
Arizona taxpayers may support our programs for students through a donation to Science of Sport as a Qualifying Charitable Organization (QCO) until April 17, 2018 and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against your 2017 state tax liability.
The limits for 2017 a Qualifying Charitable Organization allow for up to $400 for single filers and up to $800 married/joint filling.
FAQ’s for Arizona State Taxpayers
Beginning with the 2016 tax year, credit eligible contributions made to a Qualifying Charitable Organization or Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization that are made on or before April 16th (the 15th day of the fourth month following the close of the taxable year) may be applied to either the current or the preceding taxable year and is considered to have been made on the last day of that taxable year.
NOTE: Because calendar year filers have until April 17, 2018, to file their 2017 tax return, these taxpayers also have until April 17, 2018, to make qualifying contributions and claim these credits on their 2017 Arizona return. Donations made in 2018 are not deductible on 2017 federal filings. Please consult with a tax advisor. The tax credits are only available to individuals who file taxes in Arizona.
