Dear Friends,

Almost daily, the Temple Emanu-El Mitzvah Corp. receives requests for assistance from working Tucsonans--many of them Temple members--who are ill, injured, laid off, and just one pay check away from homelessness. Thanks to the Temple Emanu-El Mitzvah Corp., many of these individuals will never have to see the inside of a homeless shelter or figure out how to sleep a family of four in their car.

Your contribution to the Temple Emanu-El Mitzvah Corp. is treated by the Arizona Department of Revenue as a qualifying tax credit and is exempt from federal income tax under the Internal Revenue Code.

Remember, your Arizona Qualifying Charitable Tax Credit is separate from and in addition to the foster care and public and private school tax credits. You can contribute to any and all of those as well. The amount you contribute is subtracted from taxes you owe the State of Arizona. The amount contributed must not exceed your overall Arizona tax liability or the excess will be carried forward for up to five years. The maximum amount of this credit is $400 for individuals, $800 for couples filing jointly. The QCO code is #20314. The deadline for donation for the 2019 tax year is, April 15, 2020. For more information, consult your tax professional.

The Temple Emanu-El Mitzvah Corp., created eighteen years ago, is a qualifying charitable organization that provides services to Arizona residents who need temporary assistance or emergency there for those in need, and needs your contributions more than ever. It is at the core of our religious tradition to provide assistance to the most vulnerable members of our community.
