  • Arizona provides two separate tax credits for individuals who make contributions to charitable organizations: one for donations to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (QCO) and the second for donations to Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organizations (QFCO).
  • Two separate nonrefundable tax credits are available to individuals for contributions made to a Certified School Tuition Organization, which provides scholarships for students enrolled in Arizona private schools.
  • An individual may claim a nonrefundable tax credit for making contributions or paying fees directly to a public school in Arizona for support of eligible activities, programs or purposes as defined by statute.
