To offset your Arizona State Income Tax Obligation for the 2019 tax year, tax credit donations need to be made by April 15, 2020.
Because the IRS deadline for filing personal returns for 2019 has been extended to July 15, 2020 and the State of Arizona has followed suit, some donors have asked if the tax credit donation deadline is also being extended.  The board of The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona checked for the most current information on the matter, and received the following response:
"Contributions to certified school tuition organizations, public schools, and qualifying charitable organizations: Under current law, the date that taxpayers may elect to designate the taxable year within which these contributions apply remains April 15, 2020. State law does not authorize the Director or ADOR (Arizona Department of Revenue) to alter the scope of these statutorily‐provided credits."   
Arizona tax credit donations made by April 15 can be used for either the 2019 or 2020 tax year, but not both.  
In the Arizona economy, the need for employees who have vocational certifications is growing.  Help someone lift themselves out of poverty by supporting the vocational education grants provided by TRVFA to individuals who meet specific low-income guidelines.  To donate, go to
