Your Tax Credit Eligibility
How much tax credit do you qualify for? Receive up to $2062* in tax credit if you are married, filing joint, and up to $1031* if you are single, filing as head of household, or married, filing separately.
Tax Credit vs. Tax Deduction
How does a tax credit differ from a tax deduction? A tax credit is more beneficial than a deduction. Credit reduces your Arizona taxes (the bottom line) dollar-for-dollar, while a deduction reduces the taxable income upon which the taxes are calculated.
