Unlike other donations, this is not a deduction off your income. If you donate $800 you get $800 directly off your AZ State Income Tax Bill!
What is the difference between a Tax Credit and Tax Deduction?
A tax credit reduces the amount you owe in AZ State income taxes. So, for instance, if you owe $5,000 in state income taxes, and you give $800 to the EVJCC as a tax credit, you would only owe $4,200.
A tax deduction comes off your total income. So if your total income was $60,000 for the year and you donated $800 then it would reduce your income to $59,200 and that is what your tax would be based on. So your tax bill would not be reduced that much.
What is the EVJCC QCO?
The EVJCC has established a separate organization (EVJCC QCO) recognized by the State of AZ as a Qualifying Charitable Organization. For more information please visit: AZ Dept. of Revenue – Info on Qualifying Charitable Organizations. Donors should use the the EVJCC QCO code 20885 when taking the tax credit on their income tax returns. To make sure you are eligible for the tax credit please check with your tax adviser.
