Want to feel even better about donating to Open Arms? Follow the steps below to claim your charitable tax credit in Arizona.
1. Donate to Open Arms
If you're filing your taxes:
As "single" or "head of household", you can claim a tax credit up to $400.
As "married filing jointly", you and your spouse can claim a tax credit up to $800.
3. Get your credit
The State of Arizona will either add to your refund or deduct from what you owe—dollar for dollar—the amount you donated to Open Arms.
Prefer to deduct your donation from your federal taxes?
We qualify as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which means you can deduct donations to Open Arms from your federal taxes.
If you want to deduct your donation from your federal taxes instead of claiming a tax credit on your state taxes, you'll need Form 1040, Schedule A, which you can download on the IRS website. Fill out the form and include it in your federal taxes.
