Q: Where can I find more information about the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit?
A: https://azdor.gov/forms/tax-credits-forms/credit-contributions-qualifying-foster-care-charitable-organizations   
Q: Can you give me an example of how this works?
A: Assume you are a married tax filer and normally pay about $4,000 in total Arizona state taxes. This year you decide to contribute to organizations eligible for the tax credit.
Let’s assume you donated to four organizations that qualify for four different tax credits (the QCO Credit for $800 (Mom's Pantry & Hustle PHX) , the QFCO (Foster Care) for $1000, and the Public School Tax Credit for $400 and the Private School Credit for $1,186) for a total of $3,386.
You get a dollar-for-dollar credit against state taxes owed for $3,386. By donating to tax credit eligible organizations, now your total state tax liability equals $4,000 less the credit of $3,386, for $614 of remaining tax liability. Your total dollars paid remains $4,000 whether you use tax credits or not – it’s either $4,000 all paid to the state, or $3,386 paid to tax credit eligible organizations and $614 paid to the state. If you had already paid in the full $4,000 in state taxes during the year, you would get a refund for the $3,386.
