What is The Arizona Tax Credit?
A nonrefundable individual/joint tax credit for voluntary cash contributions to a qualifying charitable organization (QCO)

Do I have to itemize to claim Charitable Tax Credits?

How do I know Habitat qualifies for the credit under this program?
Qualifying organizations are required to send the Department of Revenue a self-certification letter stating that they meet all qualifying criteria. The Department in turn publishes a list of self-certified organizations.
