Follow these 5 easy steps:
– The private and public school tax credits and qualifying charitable tax credit are two separate things. Donating to one does not impede your ability to donate to the other in any way. You can give and benefit under all three tax credits!
– 100% of every dollar from the tax credit goes directly to supporting music therapy services.
- A $400.00 tax credit provides a scholarship for a while to receive group music therapy for four months.
- An $800.00 tax credit provides a scholarship for a child to receive group music therapy for eight months.
-HOH serves over 600 people a week, 52 weeks a year!
Things You Should Know
–You may remember having to donate by December 31st of the year for which you're filing taxes. NOT ANYMORE!! Now you can donate up until APRIL 15th, 2017 for your 2016 tax return!
"I'm not good with changes. Music therapy has helped me reduce my anxiety so I can go out in the community independently and make new friends. It has made me a better person. Music therapy makes me feel like I don't have a disability. I am free to express myself, free to be myself." - Steffi, age 30
– For every dollar donated, Higher Octave Healing is able to fund music therapy programs that work on life skills, helping our clients to reach their potential and ultimately be happy and contributing members of society. Your donation makes a big difference in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities!
– This is a dollar-for-dollar reduction on the income tax you owe! If you donate $400 to HOH and you don't owe anything on your 2016 taxes, you will get $400 back in your tax return. If you end up owing the government, $400 of credit will be applied to what you owe!
–Previously you have only been able to donate up to $200/$400 when filing as a single/joint filer respectively. Thanks to the Arizona State Legislature, NOW you can double that amount and ultimately get double that amount back on your taxes!
1. Determine if you are filing your taxes as a single or joint filer for 2016.
2. Select your donation amount: single filers can give up to $400 and joint filers can give up to $800!
4. Claim your donation on your taxes under "contributions for Qualifying Charitable Organizations"
5. Get a dollar-for-dollar credit on your tax return!
