How the AZ Tax Credit works
You make a donation to the EVJCC, up to $400 individual or $800 couple.
You take a dollar-for-dollar TAX CREDIT on your AZ income tax return.
The EVJCC continues to help those in our community in need and you’ve helped make that happen!
Donations to the EVJCC stay here, in your community. The donations collected go toward programs for all age groups, to enrich the lives of people right here in our neighborhoods.
Help us reach our Tax Credit Goal of $115,000 by April 2022. Let’s make this a reality!
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!
Through our JBox program, including the JBox Food Pantry, the EVJCC provides meals and food to poor or homebound seniors and children and families in need.
Helps the homeless
Programs help provide food, clothing and toiletries to homeless individuals and families in need.
Preschool and camp scholarships
Scholarships help families with financial challenges who want to send their children to preschool or camp.
Provides financial assistance
The EVJCC distributes money for qualified services through other Jewish agencies in Arizona that provide those services.
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.
