Time-Sensitive Changes to Arizona Tax Credits

EDIT: Correction made to the effective date.

In the past you may have given to various Arizona charitable organizations that allowed for a $1-for-$1 state tax credit on your tax return. These included donations to Qualifying Charitable Organizations, Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organizations, Public Schools, the Arizona Military Family Relief Fund, and Private School Tuition Organizations (STOs).  Changes are coming related to the rules of how this works, and there is a very narrow window (8/24/18-8/27/18) if you wanted to take advantage of making the 2018 tax credit donations before the new rules are made effective.
