Q: Can you give me an example of how the tax credit is applied?
A. Let’s say that you have a State tax liability of $1,000, and you donated $421 to Pinal-Gila Council for Senior Citizens. That means that you reduced your tax liability by $421, and you would now owe the State $579. This is a dollar for dollar tax credit.

Q: Do I claim my Charitable Contribution as a tax credit or deduction?
A. Your Charitable Contribution can be claimed as a tax credit; however you cannot claim both a tax credit and a deduction for the same contribution on your Arizona tax return. You can also claim your contribution as a charitable donation in your federal taxes.
