Working Poor Tax Credit

Did you know that the Arizona Working Poor Tax Credit lets you direct your tax dollars to United Food Bank and help provide meals to struggling Arizona families?

It’s the support of friends like you that allows us to bring hope to the many people struggling during this difficult economic time.

There are so many that have lost their jobs, homes, and ability to feed themselves and their families in recent years. In Arizona, 18.7% of individuals are living below the federal poverty level. United Food Bank provides the equivalent of 51,100 meals every day to help these people in need.

 That’s why we need your help. Right now, as an Arizona taxpayer, you have the perfect opportunity to help feed these individuals and families, while reducing your tax liability through the AZ Working Poor Tax Credit.

If you itemize your taxes, you could receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on a donation made to United Food Bank, up to $200 if you file as a single or $400 dollars if you file jointly. Just make your donation by December 31st for the credit to count on your Arizona tax return.*

You may be surprised to know that $1 can provide close to 5 meals to the hungry right here in Arizona! Imagine how far we can stretch your donation dollars! Donate now!
