CHARITABLE Tax Credit DONATION

 

The following information concerns a fabulous opportunity for you to give a hand up to our Mohave County Veteran homeless and at-risk  population. The best part of this opportunity is that it will not cost you a cent to specify the Jerry Ambrose Veterans Council of Mohave County (JAVC) as the recipient of your Arizona State Tax dollars.

We have just been approved as a (QCO) Qualified Charitable Organization (JAVC Qualifying Charitable Organization Certificate ) by the Arizona Department of Revenue for donations. The maximum credit allowed is $800 for married filing joint filers and $400 for single, heads of household, and married filing separate filers.  You do not have to be a veteran.  You just have to owe taxes to the State of Arizona to qualify for this donation.

The attachment (JAVC Tax Credit Handout 01-18-2020) gives a better description of this program, but the short explanation is you can control where your Arizona tax money is spent.  Using this program, your money stays in Mohave County and benefits military veterans and their families.

As an example- If you are Head of Household and owe $500 to the state in taxes. If you donate $400 to the JAVC  QCO program and send in IRS forms 321 (AZ_TAX_CREDIT_321_2019_f ) and 301 (AZ_FORMS_CREDIT_2019_301_f ) along with a JAVC Tax Credit Receipt (JAVC AZ Tax Credit Receipt 12-31-2019) for $400, you would only have to remit $100 to the Arizona Department of Revenue.

How do I make this contribution?

1. You can make a check out to JAVC and send it to:
