WAYS TO HELP
Our Family Services’ exists because of the generosity of people and businesses like you. Thank you for supporting our programs.
Dedicate your tax dollars to Our Family
The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit allows you to receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on your Arizona state income tax when you give to a qualifying charity that serves the working poor. Our Family is a qualifying charity.
For those filing a single tax return, your tax credit can be up to $400; for those filing jointly, it’s up to $800. This means the money you pay in taxes can benefit your community through an organization you choose! The amount you donate, up to these limits, will be deducted from the tax liability you owe the state, or added to your state refund if you don’t owe taxes this year. Here’s what to do:
- Donate to Our Family, online or by check. Send checks to: Our Family Services, 2590 N. Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ 85712
- Prepare your state return.
- Complete Arizona Tax Form 321 and include it with your state return.
