Did you know that you can make a donation to Back to School Clothing Drive and get all of your money back on a dollar-for-dollar tax credit through the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit (better than a deduction) on your 2016 Arizona Taxes? YES, THIS IS A DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR CREDIT! And it has doubled since last year. Not only do you help the kids of BTSCD, you also help yourself by directing your tax dollars to support families in need, then you get it back on your state tax returns!
By taking advantage of the Credit for Donations made to Qualifying Charitable Organizations like Back to School Clothing Drive, eligible taxpayers can now donate up to $400 per individual or $800 per married couple to BTSCD and get it all back on your returns. Your donation of $400 will completely outfit 40 kids in need and your $800 donation helps 80 students.
You will help change the life of a school-age child AND receive a CREDIT on your Arizona taxes in the full amount of your donation. All Charitable Tax Credit donations are matched by BHHS Legacy Foundation. http://www.backtoschoolclothingdrive.com/donate-now/ to donate today.
