For the last four or five years a small group, including The Huachucans, have worked diligently to identify those entities in Cochise County which qualify as Arizona Tax Credits for state income tax purposes.

In other words, for every dollar contributed to qualifying entities, as approved by the AZ Dept of Revenue, every dollar stays in Cochise County to help these deserving entities. Hence, “keep it in Cochise.”

What follows are those deserving entities for the 2019 AZ state tax credits. Suggest readers clip the information below and save it for 2019 tax filing season and show to your tax preparer.

For these Qualifying Charitable Organizations (QCO), the tax credit limits are $400 (filing separately) and $800 filing jointly. File form 321.
