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.
