Did you know that by making a monetary donation to HCS, you can redirect your AZ tax dollars from the general tax pool to helping Arizona’s vulnerable children?
HCS is a Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization (QFCO#10030).
This means you can claim your donation on your AZ state taxes and get a dollar-for-dollar credit – reducing the amount you owe. The maximum allowable tax credit is $500 single, or $1,000 for married filing jointly.
Here is how it works:
Your donation can help provide:
therapy to a child who has experienced trauma
parent skills training to help strengthen families
safe placement for Arizona’s children in foster care
high-quality care for our equine horses
Example: Single taxpayer making $30,000 | Owes AZ State Taxes 3.36% = $1,008 (view IRS website for current rate) | Donates $500 to HCS for tax credit | Reduces taxpayer’s liability from $1,008 to $508 | The individual would end up paying $508 to the State of Arizona. ** Please consult your tax advisor for advice on your specific tax situation.
Included within the $2 trillion economic relief bill is a new above-the-line charitable tax deduction. At this time, for only tax year 2020, taxpayers will be able to deduct up to $300 for charitable giving – and you don’t need to itemize deductions on your 2020 tax return to receive this deduction.
All donations to Hope Community Services are used to create lasting solutions for children and families!
