As the holiday season rapidly approaches, we all find ourselves bombarded with donation requests. Rim Country is an extremely charitable community and I know most of you do what you can to help the less fortunate.
Sadly, many times our donations are divided into portions and administration costs, organization costs, fund-raising fees, etc., and only a small percentage goes to benefit the actual charity. What if you could donate to a great local charity where 100 percent of your money goes to the charity and up to $400 of your donation is eligible for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit (CTC)?
You can. Payson Community Kids (PCK) is just that charity. Donations are eligible for tax credits because PCK provides assistance with food, clothing, medical and dental assistance to economically disadvantaged children and their families, thereby making PCK an Arizona-qualified 501(c)3 charity. This means that individuals and couples who itemize their deductions on their taxes get a reduction on their tax liability, dollar for dollar, up to $200 for an individual and $400 for a couple.
Please make checks payable to Payson Community Kids, P.O. Box 1856, Payson, AZ 85547. EIN # 03-0376861
