The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit lets you get every single dollar of your donation to Homeward Bound back as a state tax refund or credit against what you owe in state taxes. It’s easy, and there’s no need to itemize. Just make your gift before April 15, 2017.
Starting in 2016, the limits were DOUBLED — meaning your gift up to $800 (married couples filing jointly) or $400 (individuals) now qualifies for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit.

#1. It costs you NOTHING!
Tax credits reduce your taxes dollar-for-dollar as a credit (not a deduction). In other words, a donation of up to $800 to Homeward Bound ends up costing you nothing because it will be applied as an $800 credit on your state tax return.
#2. The limits were doubled in 2016.
The Charitable Tax Credit limits were doubled in 2016, meaning you can now get a refund of up to $400 (individuals) or $800 (married couples). Any donation amount up to the maximum is greatly appreciated! The new deadline was also changed to April 15, 2017 for the 2016 tax year.
#3. Yes, you DO qualify!
Anyone who files income taxes in Arizona can claim the credit simply by making a contribution to Homeward Bound. And no, you don’t need to itemize your tax return to claim this credit.
#4. You can take multiple tax credits.
In the same year, you may take advantage of multiple tax credits: the Charitable Tax Credit, the Public School Tax Credit, the Private School Tuition Tax Credit, the Foster Care Credit, and more.
#5. Your gift will help homeless families in need.
Your dollars will go directly to helping over 500 individuals here in Maricopa County overcome homelessness through Homeward Bound’s programs.
