Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson (BBBST) is a Qualifying Organization for the Arizona State Charitable Tax Credit. When you donate to BBBST, you can receive a tax credit that reduces the amount you owe the state – dollar for dollar.
The Arizona State Charitable Tax Credit allows Arizona residents who make gifts to BBBST to receive a tax credit up to $800 for married couples filing jointly and up to $400 for individuals filing as single/head of household. The last day to postmark or make online gifts has changed to April 15th for charitable tax credit-qualifying contributions credited to the previous calendar year.
There is no need to itemize your Arizona state tax return! Personal gifts made to BBBST online, by mail, through Bowl For Kids’ Sake, the annual BIG Gala, El Tour de Tucson, or monthly giving, all qualify for the Arizona State Charitable Tax Credit, as well!
