Time is running out to take advantage of Arizona’s school and charitable tax credits for 2014.

 

Make a contribution to an Arizona public school and/or qualifying charitable organization by December 31, 2014 and you could receive tax credits, reducing your tax bill by as much as $400 for an individual or $800 for a married couple filing jointly. And, you do not have to itemize deductions to claim these tax credits.

 

I especially encourage Tucsonans to take the opportunity to contribute to our Title 1 schools, which lack the financial resources found in more affluent neighborhoods. Read more…
