Help At-Risk Children and Reduce Your State Income Tax —If you are a resident of Arizona, one of the easiest ways to make a difference in the lives of children is through the Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit. This is not a tax deduction, but an actual credit. Currently, married couples can reduce what they owe in state taxes by $1,000, while single filers are eligible for a $500 credit.
