Kids in Focus is a Qualified Charitable Organization (QCO)
Thanks to the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit program, you now have an added incentive to support Kids in Focus. You will receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit against your State of Arizona taxes owed on amounts up to $400 individually or $800 if filing jointly. You’ll end up paying the same amount whether or not you donate, so why not have a say in how your tax money is spent by contributing it to Kids in Focus?
A tax credit provides much greater savings than a deduction. A tax credit directly and equally reduces the amount you pay the state. A tax deduction reduces the amount of income on which you are taxed. Simply put, every dollar you donate to KIF will directly reduce the amount of taxes you owe.
Send KIF your donation and we’ll send you a receipt, which is the only documentation required. Then simply list the donation amount and our QCO Code 20929 on your Arizona tax return (Form 321, automatically included in the return).
Make your donation by credit card or mail a check payable to:
Kids in Focus
3104 E Camelback Rd, Box 831
Phoenix, AZ 85016
Donations made by the April tax deadline will receive the State of Arizona tax credit for the previous year.
Tax Credit FAQs
Can I contribute to more than one tax credit category?
Yes, you can contribute the maximum to all four tax credit categories! You don’t have to choose just one. This tax credit is in addition to the Public & Private Education and Foster Care Tax Credits. For example, a single filer can contribute $400 to Kids in Focus, $200 to a public school, $555 to a private school, and $500 to foster care provider.
Do I need to itemize deductions to claim the tax credit?
No. Starting with the 2013 tax year, taxpayers are no longer required to itemize deductions to claim the tax credit. For 2012 and prior, taxpayers were required to itemize deductions on their Arizona return.
How do I file?
Send KIF your donation and we’ll send you a receipt, which is the only documentation required. Then simply fill out Form 321 that is included with the materials provided by the State of Arizona. Use QCO code 20929 on your tax return.
