Claim Your Tax Credit with Young Life Capernaum Arizona

It almost sounds too good to be true!!
Did you know that if you owe Arizona state income taxes, you can make a contribution to Young Life Capernaum and lower your Arizona state tax liability?
Young Life Capernaum is an Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization (see our certificate at the bottom of the page). Contributions to Young Life Capernaum are eligible for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit (formerly known as the Working Poor Tax Credit).
Married taxpayers can reduce their taxes by up to $800; single and head of household taxpayers can reduce their taxes by up to $400. Generally, if married taxpayers file separate returns, each spouse may claim 1/2 of the credit that would have applied to a joint return. You may also be able to claim a federal tax deduction for the amount donated. Check with your tax professional.

Want to contribute your tax credit dollars on a monthly basis versus a one-time gift? $67 a month for the $800 contribution or $34 a month for the $400 contribution. Use the online giving link below and choose monthly option - giving can be by credit card or electronic check (EFT).
This tax credit for Young Life Capernaum is separate from the Foster Care tax credit and separate from the School tax credits. They all have their own indivual credit limits. A taxpayer may make contributions to all of the eligible types of tax credits if they desire. Consult your tax professional.
Beginning with the 2016 tax year, donations to Qualifying Charitable Organizations and Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organizations are claimed as separate credits with separate limitations for each. Also beginning in 2016, credit eligible contributions made to either type of organization that are made on or before the 15th day of the fourth month following the close of the taxable year, may be applied to either the current or the preceding taxable year and are considered to have been made on the last day of that taxable year.

​With your support, many more families with children who have special needs will now be able to be reached! More adolescents with intellectual and developmental disabilities will be able to experience the love and friendship of a Young Life Capernaum gathering and experience the "best week of their life" at a Young Life Camp.
