As I read the Arizona Revised Statutes, I see here Arizona law provides an income tax credit for cash contributions made to certain charities that provide help to the working poor. Yes, Jesus Cares Ministries ( is a qualified recipient of the “Arizona Charitable Tax Credit”. This is a dollar for dollar tax credit ($800 if married, $400 if single). You do not even need to itemize, just send in a check and file form 321 with your Arizona Income tax Return. As always, please consult your tax professional with any additional questions, as I will be involved in intense potty training this week.
