Still time for 2017 tax credit!
There is still time to make a tax credit donation for your 2017 Arizona State tax return. While you may be familiar with the school tax credit in Arizona, you may not know that in addition to a school tax credit donation, you may also make a tax credit contribution to a Qualifying Charitable Organization in the same year. The Poore Medical & Dental Clinics are a Qualifying Charitable Organization. You also have until April 15th to make a tax credit contribution for your 2017 tax return.
Q: How much can you donate?
A: A married couple filing jointly can receive a maximum tax credit of $800. If you are single, or an unmarried head of household, or married filing separately, you may receive a maximum tax credit amount of $400.
Q: How do you qualify?
A: To qualify for the tax credit, you simply need to claim the contribution on your 2017 Arizona tax return. This tax credit may be claimed in addition to other Arizona tax credits, such as those for public schools or school tuition organizations.
Q: How do you donate?
A: It’s simple. Just write a check made out to the Poore Medical Clinic and mail it in the envelope provided. We’ll send you a receipt. For more information visit flagstafftaxcredit.org or https://www.azdor.gov/about/faqs/charitabletaxcredit.aspx
Are you a Registered Nurse? We need you!
The Clinic needs more nurses to volunteer on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you would be willing to give a half-day once a month, it would greatly benefit our patients.
Please contact Genevieve Conley, RN at 928-213-5543.
Thank you for helping us help people in need!
Does your Flagstaff dentist volunteer at our Sid Davis, DDS Memorial Dental Clinic?
We currently have a backlog of six months for our patients waiting to see a dentist for primary dental care. There are 72 dentists in Flagstaff and eight of these wonderful professionals volunteer to see patients at our dental clinic.
Please ask your dentist whether she/he also volunteers to see patients at our dental clinic. If the answer is yes, please say Thank You on behalf of our grateful patients. If the answer is no, please ask them Why Not? A dentist volunteering even one half of one day in a month will help us provide professional dental care to people in need.
The Poore Medical Clinic is a non-profit, volunteer-run
